Modern applications of Mindfulness

Mindfulness
  • Mindfulness, or sati, is one of the most
    important aspects of Buddhist practice. It means
    presence of mind, attentiveness, or awareness.
  • The Pali term, sati, more properly means To
    remember to be mindful.
  • Right Mindfulness, or Samma Sati, is a factor of
    the Noble Eightfold Path. It is developed
    through the practice of Vipassana meditation and
    is the only way to learn to see things as they
    really are.

Modern Applications
  • Mindfulness and Your Highest Human Potential
  • by Joshua OBrien, O.M. www.whyimeditate.com
  • Since 1967, over 1500 studies have been conducted
    by over 250 independent research institutes
    showing meditation practice to be clinically
    effective for the management of stress, anxiety
    and panic, chronic pain, depression, and a wide
    array of medical and mental health related
    conditions.
  • In addition to significant reductions in stress,
    the benefits of regular daily practice include
    elevated immune system function, less frequency
    and duration of illnesses, decreased heart rate
    and blood pressure, improved sleep and digestion,
    improved mental function, intelligence, and
    memory.

Modern Applications
  • In fact, medical outcomes from 15,000 patients
    participation in the UMass Medical Schools
    Center for Mindfulness Stress Reduction Program
    since 1979 have shown a 35 reduction in the
    number of medical symptoms and a 40 reduction in
    psychological symptoms.
  • Not surprisingly, mindfulness meditation programs
    are being conducted in hundreds of hospitals,
    healthcare facilities, schools, corporate
    wellness programs, and prison settings all across
    the United States, and around the world.

37
Modern Applications
  • Thanks to the ongoing dialogue between prominent
    scientists and key figures from the contemplative
    traditions, Western science has slowly come to
    realize that this practice, taught by Buddha over
    2500 years ago, has a profound impact on our
    physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
  • The benefits of mindfulness meditation practice,
    however, extend well beyond therapeutic
    applications or the development of new
    competencies in business or educational settings.
    For thousands of years people have been
    practicing mindfulness meditation, not for the
    benefits stated above, but for three primary
    purposes To know the mind, to train the mind,
    and ultimately to free the mind.

Modern Applications
  • Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT )
  • This is a psychological therapy which blends
    features of cognitive therapy with mindfulness
    techniques of Buddhism. MBCT involves accepting
    thoughts and feelings without judgement rather
    than trying to push them out of consciousness,
    with a goal of correcting cognitive distortions.
  • The aim of MBCT is not directly to relaxation or
    happiness in themselves, but rather, a "freedom
    from the tendency to get drawn into automatic
    reactions to thoughts, feelings, and events. It
    prioritizes learning how to pay attention or
    concentrate in each moment and without judgment.

  • He took his umbrella with him as he had a long
    way to travel and the skies were dark with rain
    clouds. After some hours of walking, he
    eventually found his way to his masters hut.

    sandals and left them outside together with his
    umbrella.
