Article: Is Mindfulness All That It’s Cracked Up to Be?

Very interesting article, that not only calls into question some of the published studies on mindfulness meditation, but discusses what the history of what we now call Buddhist meditation actually is and how what we know has been changed to better fit the needs of Christian missionaries. While I like the general practice of such meditation, it hasn’t been my favored style, mainly because of the influences from the religious side of things. I prefer to work within the Jewish contemplative practices. But the article is interesting.
