  • MIndful Resilience

    Mindfulness has also been called “awareness”, or “witness consciousness”.  These are traditional ways of describing an aspect of meditation that is about observing the mind while it is active, observing the mind creating its sense of self and others while it is actually doing it. From meditation, we recognise that thoughts are not facts, and so the thought-constructed ideas of who we are, and what others are like, have a fanciful element in them. Through mindfulness we recognise that judgments and reactions based on our thoughts and opinions only spoil our lives and relationships.

    Mindfulness applied to what we learn about Resilience focuses mindfulness on our habitual ways of processing situational factors like irritation, and desire to be liked, and many others which are normally issues that just bubble away under the surface. The result is that we develop not only awareness, but a problem-solving resilience which orients us towards solutions rather than maintaining the sense of having problems.
