Jon Kabat-Zinn Defines Mindfulness
Rossana Magalhaes is qualified to teach the MBSR by the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Mindfulness. She attended the MBSR Teacher Development Intensive in August 2016 and the Nine-Day Intensive Practicum in MBSR in January 2016. Rossana has been teaching MBSR since 2016. She has been practicing mindfulness meditation for more than a decade.
Jon Kabat–Zinn says that “When you pay attention to boredom it gets unbelievably interesting. Mindfulness is about love and loving life. All the suffering, stress, and addiction comes from not realizing you already are what you are looking for. In Asian languages, the word for ‘mind’ and the word for ‘heart’ are the same.”
