Mindfulness Assessment:

Mindfulness Assessment: Awareness

Do you consider yourself a mindful person?  What is mindfulness and so what?


Kabat-Zinn’s definition of mindfulness, “the awareness that emerges through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, nonjudgmentally to the unfolding of experience, moment by moment” is the most widely accepted, even though other definitions of mindfulness have been proposed.


So what?  What if a mindfulness practice could:  restore cognitive capacity and clarity; create greater opportunities to make profound discoveries by accessing intuition and wisdom; reduce the psychological suffering created by the ego’s rising and falling drama and improve your overall mental well-being and happiness.    


What can I do about it?


Take this assessment to establish a baseline and then go from there based upon what you learn.


If that makes sense, go ahead and read the description below and take the assessment.


This instrument is based on a factor analytic study of five independently developed mindfulness questionnaires. The analysis yielded five factors that appear to represent elements of mindfulness as it is currently conceptualized. The five facets are observing, describing, acting with awareness, non-judging of inner experience, and non-reactivity to inner experience.  As “acting with awareness” is the most important variable, let’s begin with that one and go from there.


Write the number in the blank that best describes your own opinion of what is generally true for you.


1 - Never or very rarely true 

2 - Rarely true

3 - Sometimes true 

4 - Often true

5 - Very often or always true

Thank you for your submittal.  Your score will be calculated and reported back to you via email by a qualified Sherpa of Souls staffer.
