mindfulness is not a new discovery; it is an ancient philosophy and part of a religion; it does not hold all the answers. It can be a tool of self awareness but totally inappropriate in certain situations, when passion and action are more appropriate. Beware new interpretations – reinventing the wheel and those that say they have the cure. Beware this because those who take your knowledge and intuition and validate it as their expertise may be franchising in order to make money out of telling you that you know less than you really know and strip you of your own expertise.
If you can not afford to train in their franchise, your knowledge is seen as worthless.
