Mindfulness is an attitude, a way of being with the self and the world. Even if we do not always realize it, it is the attitude that we ask our patients in EMDR: to observe simply what comes, without judging, without trying to control ...
The dual attention in EMDR consists in this presence to what is happening (in the present and in relation to the past). We ask the patient to start from the threads of Phase 3, and then to welcome all what may come: thoughts, sensations, emotions, images, memories ...
As EMDR practitioners, we must embody this attitude and be continuously present to what is happening in ourselves, from the arrival of the patient to his departure. Without that, at best we slow down the process, at worst we prevent it.
Mindfulness in EMDR is a total acceptance. It is not a moral agreement, but an opening beyond the point of view, both to what the patient is carrying and what is happening to him now. From one session to the next, this now continually surprises us, disarms us, makes us realize our fundamental impotence which must be considered as inherent to our role of therapist. "Get out of the way!" – so tells us F. Shapiro. This openness is also some non-resistance. When something in us "knows" what is good for our patient, wants to lead, or give advice ... we are resisting ourselves against the process of integration and adaptation
