As it has become more and more popular in the West, mindfulness has sometimes been removed from the context in which it was originally presented. Rather than understood as a precursor to insight, it is often presented as an end in itself. This puts too much of a burden on mindfulness to solve all of our problems. Mindfulness is a means of training the mind to observe itself. To what end? We will explore, through discussion and meditation, the Buddhist view of self and selflessness, compassion and emptiness, and suffering and its release. Particular attention will be paid to how to make mindfulness relevant to the trials and tribulations of everyday life.
