Attitudinal Foundations of Mindfulness Practice

Non-judging—taking the stance of the impartial witness to your own experience.

Patience—employing the wisdom that things must unfold in their own time.

Beginner’s mind—Cultivating a mind that is willing to see everything as if for the first

Trust— Developing a basic trust in one’s own self, intuition, and feelings.

Non-striving—Allowing anything and everything we experience to be here, because it
already is.

Acceptance—Seeing things as they actually are in the present.

Letting Go—Letting be, allowing things to be, accepting things as they are.
