Practical Mindfulness

We have little control over the types of very real problems which precipitate negative feelings. But with the proper training, in the case mindfulness training and meditation, we can learn to control the way we manage these negative experiences. In the course of mindfulness training, what one learns is the ability to become aware of and redirect the negative judgements one brings to experiences, thoughts, and emotions, and the process of understanding these judgements is the core of what makes mindfulness a useful practice.
