What Is Mindfulness?
Crane (2017) describes three broad elements of mindfulness teaching and how, in a Buddhist context, they are taught as an integrated system that offers the potential to develop insight and new perspectives, and to foster personal transformation:
- the development of mindful awareness by a combination of systematic and informal practice;
- an attitudinal framework characterized by kindness, curiosity, and a willingness to be present with the unfolding of experience;
- a deep understanding of the nature of suffering.
The practice of mindfulness has been taken from its original Buddhist context and used as a technique within a number of psychotherapy frameworks including mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and compassion-focused therapy (CFT).
