Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, with compassion, and open-hearted curiosity .
Through cultivating mindful awareness, we discover how to live in the present moment rather than brooding about the past or worrying about the future.(http://oxfordmindfulness.org/about-mindfulness/)
There is an Oxford Mindful Centre and it seeks to combine Western scientific Knowledge of Psychiatry
with ancient Buddhist practice of meditation.
