The foundation of Mindfulness is Acceptance.
We talk about accepting the “now” with equanimity, but how does one do this when the “now” is a situation that is full of pain?
Jon Kabat-Zinn (JKZ )says that accepting things the way they are is not the same as being passively resigned to a situation. It’s about having the freedom to stand in the moment without having to make it any different.

Positive Psychology is a serious scientific discipline based on solid, empirical research. It is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play.
