Nowadays, mindfulness and meditation are often used to mean the same thing, which can be confusing, not many are clear on what ‘mindfulness meditation’ is and how it differs from each other. 

Mindfulness and meditation are mirror-like reflections of each other: mindfulness supports and enriches meditation, while meditation nurtures and expands mindfulness. Where mindfulness can be applied to any situation throughout the day, meditation is usually practised for a specific amount of time.

There are many types of meditation. They can be further categorised into insight or calming and guided or unguided. In the world of meditation, there is an approach for everyone.

In this week’s podcast episode, Marni will be speaking with Peter Radcliffe of Skillful MIND.
