Mindfulness in Moments of Crisis
There are various kinds and extents of crises that require individuals to have the clarity, discernment, and equanimity with which to handle the accompanying daunting challenges. Mindfulness, which is being fully aware in the present moment, is an effective strategy for dealing with the stressors of the adversity and trauma of crisis situations. Mindfulness provides a skill and a discipline that can help build a capacity for resilience. This paper explores the Eastern origin of mindfulness and its Western application, the significance of the practice of mindfulness, and the state of being of mindfulness in a crisis.
