Introduction to Mindfulness and Christianity

Mindfulness is a concept that most of us will have heard of. It is recommended as a highly effective approach to managing stress, improving concentration, enhancing relationships, improving emotional wellbeing, managing pain and reducing the likelihood of “burn out”. However some Christians have concerns such as it being a Buddhist practice or similar to hypnosis, so have reservations about its use in a Christian context.
