Posted by on Mon, Jan 17, 2011

Mindfulness is a separate faculty of consciousness totally distinct from cognition (thinking), emotion (feelings), intuition or sensory awareness (the 5 senses).

Mindfulness is not about Mystical Religions, awareness or meditation, although many religious and spiritual paths make use of mindfulness techniques.  Many therapies and psychotherapies are becoming “mindfulness-based” as it is discovered that all healing methodologies get better results if mindfulness is adjunctively applied.  Mindfulness techniques are primarily taught to improve emotional stability, to manage stress, to expand ones intelligence, to become more productive and to lead a more joyful and meaningful life.

Research has shown that the head bones rythmically move   in coordination with the sacrum. There is movement of the cranial bones and all the body tissues in a subtle, rhythmic pattern as the cerebrospinal fluid ebbs and flows.
