    The mindfulness approach is incredibly powerful…I use it with my coaching clients and in my course for teaching people to focus on their lives, being mindful of the anxiety, and letting it dissolve away. Love seeing more and more mindfulness popping up in Western psych approaches. Good stuff here!

    Thanks David. Yes, the popularity of mindfulness these days has really been the equivalent of a volcanic eruption. My concern is that when something becomes so popular it can be trivialized or viewed as superficial. This is why we need continued scientific study of mindfulness (which, by the way, is also thriving as seen in scholarly journals, texts, and other sources). Thanks for your feedback.
