Regarding my comment that some Westerners misinterpret mindfulness – I didn’t mean all Westerners. For example, Ajahan Brahm (an English monk who lives in Australia does a nice job of explaining things). There are a few others who do that too. I also thought of commenting about Willoughby (who started Cheetah house I think – someone mentioned here). When reading her articles, it is very clear that she has not understood at all the theoretical (and foundational) aspects of mindfulness. So, in my opinion, she is misleading people.
