Why we will come to see mindfulness as mandatory

Why we will come to see mindfulness as mandatory | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Madeleine Bunting: This increasingly popular tool for calming the mind, once seen as a New Age fad, could play a role in hospitals and schools
Henrietta Marcella Paz-Amor's insight:

Mindfulness as 'mandatory? What do you think?

 

"Some call this a mindfulness revolution but, like Jonathan Rowson at the Royal Society of Arts in a recent thoughtful blog, I think the jury is still out. Mindfulness is derived from Buddhist meditation, which at its heart is revolutionary in its emphasis on compassion and non-harm. It is profoundly counter-cultural in its asceticism. But this derivative has been meticulously framed as secular by a generation of scientists." -Madeleine Bunting
