2 thoughts on “Mindfulness comes to the Marines

  1. I question what the director of the Marines education program means when he says: “Some people might say these are Eastern-based religious practices but this goes way beyond that. This is not tied to any religious practice. This is about mental preparation to better handle stress.”. To say that mental preparation to handle stress is “beyond” a religious practice seems to entirely miss the point. To give a cheap comparison its like saying “some people might say my iPhone is an advanced computer system with GPS and internet and phone capabilities, but really it goes beyond that: it plays video games.”
