Mindfulness – alternative life style choice or a powerful therapy

Dawn Foster of the Guardian in her piece “Is mindfulness making us ill?” of 23rd January discusses the explosion of interest in courses as a technique of choice popular to employers. courses range from smart phone apps to three day as part of a training programme. Dawn refers to a number of cases where side-effects have profoundly effected peoples lives leaving them┬ádisturbed, open, and vulnerable.

She states that there are dangers in way that mindfulness is marketed as an alternative lifestyle choice rather than a powerful form of therapy. The Karuna Institute a UKCP member led by Maura Sills provides an accredited training using mindfulness. Mindfulness has been taught and used in therapeutic relationship within Core Process for thirty years.
