What Is Mindfulness-Based Meditation?

Mindfulness-based Meditation is a form of attentional training and is increasingly being integrated into western health care approaches. In the first Meditation technique, known as ‘Focussed Attention’ (FA) or simply observation of breath, individuals focus their attention on their incoming and outgoing breath. Whenever the practitioner notices that the mind has wandered off, he or she gently returns his or her attention to the breath.
In the second Meditation technique known as ‘Open Monitoring’ (OM), or simply body awareness, practitioners move their attention to different body parts and observe all types of body sensations they might be experiencing in the current moment, non-judgementally. To date, empirical work investigating the efficacy of FA and OM techniques, in the mindfulness tradition, has found beneficial effects on a number of psychiatric, functional somatic, and stress-related symptoms and has therefore increasingly been incorporated into psychotherapeutic programs.

“Being a simple witness of your thought processes. It is simply sitting silently, witnessing the thoughts, passing before you. Just witnessing, not interfering, not even judging, because the moment you judge you have lost the pure witness. The moment you say “this is good, this bad,” you have already jumped onto the thought process. It takes a little time to create a gap between the witness and the mind. Once the gap is there, you are in for a great suprise, that you are not the mind, that you are the witness, a watcher”.
