The Long Marriage of Mindfulness and Money - The New Yorker

The Long Marriage of Mindfulness and Money - The New Yorker | Mindfulness at work | Scoop.it
Meditation, like yoga before it, has been fully assimilated into corporate America. Several large companies offer their employees free meditation training.
Lothar Bielke's insight:

Mindfulness and what happens when we forget its roots. It seems that many of the modern interpretations fail to unveil the real gem hidden inside traditional meditation practices and accessible only by practice and more practice. It's not about about happiness or money but about recognizing that we can be happy with a lot of money or few money. It's not the money that will make us happy but we may can use the money for many useful things and to increase the general wellbeing not just ours.

Too much mindfulness and meditation at work can do more harm than good. Here, a critic outlines some problems with the popular practices.
Lothar Bielke's insight:

Any experienced mindfulness teacher will be aware and encourage people not to escape difficult emotions but to investigate them. It's obvious that mindfulness can only develop its positive effects if the people practicing it are not obliged to do so. As business coach and mindfulness teacher I would definitely emphasize this point. The same applies for any type of self development or therapy.
