Meditation and mindfulness: Resources for aged care

Bruce Stevens, Nicole Brooke

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


There are no universally accepted definitions of meditation and mindfulness. Meditation can be thought of as an “umbrella term” for a range of practices to achieve a desired consciousness. Mindfulness is the act of focusing on present experience. Hence, it “is a type of meditation alongside tantra, yoga, sexuality, silence, breathing and emptiness” (Bushak 2016).
