What is Mindfulness?

Jon Kabat-Zinn defines Mindfulness as the awareness that arises when paying attention to the PRESENT MOMENT intentionally, without judgment or interpretation

It is a secular practice that uses Yoga exercises, meditation, compassion and other Mindfulness and self-knowledge techniques

It works because it takes advantage of our brain's NEUROPLASTICITY to produce positive changes such as greater concentration, equanimity,   self-awareness and detachment


  • Stress, anxiety and depressive symptoms

  • Chronic pain

  • Destructive emotions

  • Cellular aging

  • Delays cognitive decline


  • Well-being

  • Concentration

  • Positive relationships

  • Ability to work under pressure

  • Immune system

  • Emotional stability

  • Creativity and productivity

In my Mindfulness courses you will learn to live in CONNECTION with yourself through techniques that you can apply in your daily life


What my students say

Excellent person and teacher, he helped me online precisely in the time and space in which I was experiencing processes autonomously without having a direction in meditation. He provided me with all the parameters and techniques necessary to be able to have an order between the physical mind and my spiritual part, he was always attentive to the doubts that arose along the way and he was pending that the class was understood.

Is Mindfulness religious?

No, Mindfulness is a secular practice. Although its origin comes from a Buddhist text called  Satipathana Sutta , Mindfulness does not have a religious belief system or ritual.


Mindfulness, which is the translation of " Satipathana ", is a way of living that anyone can learn regardless of age, gender or religion. These are cognitive and affective skills that help us live with greater calm and well-being.

Is Mindfulness a therapy?

The practice of Mindfulness by itself is not a therapy, although its effects such as reducing stress, anxiety and depression can be therapeutic. It is not considered a therapy because it does not seek to correct or change any aspect of the individual's personality.


However, some psychotherapies DO USE Mindfulness exercises and techniques for therapeutic purposes and they are known as third-wave therapies, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Functional Analytic Psychotherapy , Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), among others.


Mindfulness can be considered a cognitive training to focus the attention on the present and observe our mind, body and emotions with acceptance and equanimity.

Is Mindfulness a New Age practice?

Mindfulness does not belong to the ideological, philosophical or spiritual current of the New Age. Nor is it a pseudotherapy derived from it because its effects are scientifically proven.  

This confusion happens because some types of meditation are associated with the New Age ideology, however, Mindfulness remains outside these practices, since it focuses on human well-being through the awareness of thoughts, bodily sensations, emotions and physical senses.

Who can practice Mindfulness?

Anyone can practice Mindfulness, from children to the elderly, since Mindfulness exercises and practices can be perfectly adapted to any age range.


Mindfulness is as much for people who are going through some difficult situations in their lives and want to enhance themselves, as for those who have a good quality of life and want to improve their self-knowledge, well-being and their emotional, mental and cognitive capacities.

Mindfulness is also recommended as an alternative for people who have already received a psychiatric or psychological treatment, and want to relieve the typical symptoms of their disorders, preventing relapse episodes of stress, anxiety or depression without the use of drugs, understanding that it is NOT A CURE.

What are the effects of practicing Mindfulness?

In the last 20 years there have been numerous scientific investigations that study the effects of Mindfulness in the brains of meditators, such as:

  • Reduction in the size of the brain amygdala: this causes a reduction in stress, less reactivity and a equanimous response to adverse situations.

  • Increased prefrontal cortex: it is related to a better ability to make decisions and increased self-awareness of what we are doing, thinking or feeling.

  • Kind Brains: Advanced meditators have been observed to have brain functions that make them more empathetic, compassionate  and willing to help anyone who needs it.

  • Lasting traits: the neuroplasticity of our brains allows the equanimity, compassion, concentration and detachment practiced in Mindfulness to become lasting traits even without meditating.

  • Other benefits: it delays cellular aging, makes us more tolerant to pain, improves the immune system, reduces heart rate and reduces thoughts about oneself.

How much time do I need to learn Mindfulness?

To learn how to practice Mindfulness and perceive significant results, 20-30 hours of initial practice are recommended.


After this time, it is possible to continue deepening through retreats and daily practice, with which the benefits will be maintained and lasting traits, such as detachment, concentration, compassion and equanimity will be established.

Who can teach Mindfulness?

Masters of Buddhist traditions such as Vipassana or Zen, are trained to teach Mindfulness. Professionals who have a certification and a minimum training of 200 hours are also capable of teaching it.

Anyone who has only participated in an 8-week course, who has read a book about Mindfulness or has attended a Vipassana retreat IS NOT SUITABLE to teach it, as they lack the experience and knowledge necessary to understand the Mindfulness process and technique.
