Mindfulness on the BBC

Nice podcast on mindfulness here on the BBC, focusing on Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and neuroscience research.

I can believe that there are over 40 publications on mindfulness per month, as it says on the podcast. I started with the idea of collecting together all the references together here and quickly realised that it was an impossible task!

Mention of the marines using mindfulness in the US touches on one of the key issues that Social Mindfulness is interested in. Does some Western mindfulness strip the ethics from Buddhist mindfulness in potentially harmful ways? Can, and should, we detach mindfulness from compassion.
