Mindfulness and Ubuntu: Foundations for Inner Health
Journal Title:Medical & Clinical Research
Presented here are thoughts of inner health, mindfulness, and Ubuntu. Inner health for this purpose is a state of well-being and abiding peace; and not the absence of mental health diagnosis. Mindfulness as a concept is ubiquitous, and ever increasing numbers of children, youth and adults practice this ancient tradition. Ubuntu is a cooperative way of living, anchored in the understanding of the interconnectedness of humans and nature. The African philosophy, Ubuntu, recognizes that each person has unique gifts; the person embedded in community enriches herself and community.
