    One thought on “What's Wrong with Mindfulness (And What Isn't): Zen Perspectives”

    1. Interesting critical perspectives on the commodification of mindfulness and the challenges of accurate definition in the Western world.

    2. Full review here: 108zenbooks/2016/11/18/boExcerpt:There is much right and much wrong in this book.

    3. The essays in this collection do a nice job explaining the misunderstanding of what mindfulnes actually is, along with highlighting the quest for an easy spiritual fix.I have been on retreats with many wonderful teachers, but Barry Magid's personality, perspective, and teaching resonate the most, but in retreats and in his writings.

    4. A must read if gou are interested in mindfulness. the book has important points to think about, you do agree with them or not.
