Mindful Facilitation As I was standing in the check out lane at the local grocery store, I noticed how prevalent the word Mindful has become. From Oprah's glossy cover "Tips for Mindful Living, to tabloid headlines that promise a "Mindful Romance", it seems as though Mindfulness, like gluten free, has found footing in the consciousness of American pop culture.
At its simplest, to be Mindful is to be aware of something. Taking it a bit further, to be Mindful would also include being attentive and responsive. So not only have we noticed something but we are insightfully engaged with it.
To take it one step further, Mindful would mean being insightfully engage with our world in the present moment without judgments and without defining something as "good or bad".
Now that's Mindful!
