The Dark Side of Mindfulness

Mindfulness. It’s become a buzzword in recent years and everyone from soccer moms to Silicon Valley executives are now doing it. It may seem that this is great. After all, the more people practicing mindfulness meditation, the better, right?

Meditation is an absolutely extraordinary practice that may even seem like some sort of panacea. However, there is a dark side to how it is being used by some people today, especially in the corporate world. Believe it or not, mindfulness has become weaponized, in a way, to become used as a tool to reinforce the paradigm of passive and obedient workers who enlarge the corporate bottom line.

There is a tremendous amount of heart and spirituality that naturally springs forth from meditation. However, as with many things in today’s reductionist materialist culture, it has been stripped of these qualities by the insatiable machine that is on an endless pursuit of larger profit margins and greater productivity.

Often called either mindfulness or corporate meditation, this new version of meditation does indeed accomplish a few things, but they are outcomes that end up making people give away more of their sovereignty rather than reclaiming it.
