THE REALISM OF MINDFULNESS
By Liane Stephan and Chris Tamdjidi (Awaris GmbH)
Mindfulness practices were not created simply to reduce stress and help people focus more. Fundamentally mindfulness is about being able to examine and get used to reality as it is. So mindfulness is not something esoteric – but deeply realistic.
Often we are deeply unrealistic about how we or others function – and this leads to myriad forms of stress. In this time deeply affected by the COVID pandemic we wanted to share some insights into how mindfulness does not just equip us to cope better – but indeed can help us to see more deeply into the interconnections in our experience – and how our mind, body and actions influence each other .
In this first article, we will share some common causes of misperception and then look at some of the experiences we might be having during this time of the pandemic.
