Book: New Religiosity in Contemporary Sweden

Chapter: Mindfulness in Dalarna: A Focused Area of Study

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.24689


The focus of this chapter is on the idea of 'mindfulness' as used within the conventional, secular health-care sector, a sector that did not feature in the authors' survey. The intention is to map the migration of the concept from a religious (Buddhist) to a therapeutic context in the west.
