This is a psychological therapy which blends features of Cognitive Therapy with Mindfulness techniques of Buddhism. MBCT involves accepting thoughts and feelings without judgement rather than trying to push them out of consciousness,  with a goal of correcting cognitive distortions.

The aim of MBCT is not directly for relaxation or happiness in themselves,  but rather,  as a freedom from the tendency to get drawn into automatic reactions to thoughts,  feelings,  and events.
