The mindfulness conspiracy

quote [ Mindfulness practices do not permit critique or debate of what might be unjust, culturally toxic or environmentally destructive. Rather, the mindful imperative to “accept things as they are” while practising “nonjudgmental, present moment awareness” acts as a social anesthesia, preserving the status quo. ]

A long read for stating the obvious. See also The Faux Revolution of Mindfulness (thumb source) and Is mindfulness making us ill?

Going through this again, these misunderstandings may be rooted in the word's two meanings as general awareness vs a meditation technique.

This makes it easier to further water down the meaning by using it as a catch-all self-regulation tip in a business environment. Which is done by the same people who love using words with a sytemic sound but blurry definitions – which is how I usually encounter the word.
