Mindfulness meditation can be defined as learning to bring our attention to the present moment by focusing on our breath and simply seeing what arises without bias or judgement.  When attention wanders, and we notice, we simply return our attention to the breath.

The benefit of this practice is that we become more synchronized in body and mind, and begin to relate to our world in a less distracted and more wakeful way.  By returning our attention to the present, we can actually cut through accumulation of stress and anxiety and develop clarity, strength, and stability in our everyday lives.
