Langer, Miguel Ibaceta, Jaime R. Silva & Diego Cosmelli Sánchez.

Abstract: Mindfulness is phenomenology and good phenomenology is a kind of methodological mindfulness. Mindfulness is not a Buddhist concept, but a human universal psychological resource. The target article does a good job of putting that into practice in using phenomenology to study experiences of mindfulness practitioners.
