The commercialization of mindfulness

A good read! This article “The Hidden Price of MIndfulness”, raises the question of the consequences of consumerism on mindfulness.  The best example we have is yoga.  The truth is that everything can’t be short cut, especially mindfulness.  Like loosing weight, playing piano and speaking a different language it takes practice.  The point is to slow down enough to be with what is.  I agree with the last paragraph, “But when I got home, I resolved to do more than simply support mindfulness with my wallet. I found a quiet moment, put away my iPhone, and closed my eyes to meditate. It’s not enough to buy into mindfulness. You have to practice it, too.”  Enjoy the read.
