Mindful Magazine

Apparently there is a magazine titled “mindful“. There is a free excerpt from this month’s featured article, “The Medicine of the Moment“, along with other free article excerpts.

One important section from “The Medicine of the Moment” reads:

“while mindfulness has grown in popularity and acceptability … the very fact of popularity has a notorious way of trivializing something and reducing its credibility … in the rush to respond to the demand for something that promises some relief from suffering … overpromotion inevitably ensues… ”

“… a recent paper by a group of 15 researchers called for a halt to extravagant claims surrounding mindfulness, citing a need for more careful definitions of exactly what mindfulness is when it is studied, more rigorous clinical studies, and a check on media reports and advertising of mindfulness as a virtual cure-all.
