Mindfulness is defined as purposefully paying attention towards the present moment in a non-judgemental way. In the last five years there has been increasing interest in how the components within mindfulness interact with each other to affect both interpersonal and intrapersonal outcomes. This thesis aims to continue this exploration by firstly examining how mindfulness meditation interacts with compassion meditation, and then using a variety of methods to determine how different subcomponents of mindfulness may interact with each other.
