Mindfulness and Meditation for Holistic Nursing and Midwifery Care Mindfulness is a buzz word, from Google to Apple to Nike all are teaching this technique to their leaders and employees. We invite all Nurses and Midwives to learn this skill for their personal and professional use. Many scientific researches have proven across the globe that practice of Mindfulness brings measurable physiological changes in the brain called Neuroplasticity. Practitioners report improved general sense of wellbeing and less stress and pain. We will explore the process of psychosomatic illnesses and how we can help our patients during difficult times. Therapeutic use of Mindfulness techniques such as turning towards the symptoms, pain, anger, fear, anxiety, depression, discomfort, instead of fighting the pain and wishing it goes away experiencing the pain as it is without adding or trying to subtract the pain.  Mindfulness based practices are part of National Health care system in many countries. Let’s reduce suffering and bring peace in our health care system.
