Jah, mindfulness tuleks kirjutada eesti keeles ja siin ei ole mingit head õigustust, küll aga selgitused. Mulle tundub, et sel sõnal-põhimõttel on sedalaadi konnotatsioonid, mis igal korral nõuaksid veidi erinevat tõlget, kuid kuidas siis hiljem neid tekste nt arvutist leida? Küllap pean endale mingi selgema süsteemi mõtlema. Seniks patustan ja risustan, kuid samal ajal olen ehk arusaadav ja võimeline kaasnevat kasulikku infot hiljem leidma. Või ei kanna see arutlus mindfulness loogikaid? 🙂

Siinviidatud vabalevis olev tekst oleks ehk huvitav lugemine nii mindfulness praktikate-mõtteviisi pooldajatele kui skeptikutele. Tasakaalustatud vaade ei pruugi küll äärmuslastele meeldida, kuid pakub siiski ühe võimaluse mõistmiseks.

Kontekstiks:

Mindfulness, “the awareness that arises from paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally” (Kabat-Zinn, 1994, p. 4), has been shown to confer numerous advantages (e.g., Brown & Ryan, 2003; Eberth & Sedlmeier, 2012; Farb et al., 2010; Grossman et al., 2004; Hofmann et al., 2010; Jamieson & Tuckey, 2017; Jha et al., 2007, 2010), which are theorized to occur largely through the control of attentional resources (Good et al., 2016). […] The increased interest in mindfulness has produced a complementary rising wave of criticism (see Walsh, 2016). For example, Van Dam et al. (2018) argue that insufficient attention has been paid to the potential for mindfulness to produce deleterious outcomes.

Miks tasakaalustatud vaade?

To this end, in the present paper we apply The Balance Framework (Gruman et al., 2018) to the study of mindfulness in organizations in an effort to present an inclusive picture of the phenomenon that recognizes its advantages, but also acknowledges its shadow side and boundary conditions, which are often neglected. The Balance Framework explicitly highlights that all positive phenomena have nuanced natures and conditions that influence when they are, and are not, advantageous.

Mindfulness tähendusest üldisemalt:

Although scholars have not yet achieved consensus on a specific definition of mindfulness, it is commonly conceived and operationalized with two components reflecting 1) present-moment awareness and 2) an attitude that is accepting, non-judgmental and open to experience (Bishop et al., 2004; Cardaciotto et al., 2008; Lau et al., 2006).

… ja siin tekstis:

In this paper we therefore conceptualize mindfulness as awareness that is oriented to the present-moment and characterized by the quality of non-judgment (e.g., Kabat-Zinn, 1982, 1994).

Uurimisraamistiku karakteristikud ehk tasakaalustatud vaate piirjooned:

To best understand positive phenomena, The Balance Framework specifies five ways to consider balance: 1) balance as tempered view, 2) balance as mid-range, 3) balance as complementarity, 4) balance as contextual sensitivity, and 5) balance among different levels of consciousness.

Nii ja naa:

In the workplace, empirical research using employee samples has found that mindfulness displays a positive relationship with desirable outcomes such as engagement, and a negative relationship with undesirable outcomes such as burnout (Jamieson & Tuckey, 2017; Lomas et al., 2019).

See vist on üks parimaid refereeringuid lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

Building on Nielsen and Miraglia’s (2017) ideas concerning realist evaluation, we suggest that a balanced approach to mindfulness in the workplace should consider who benefits from how much mindfulness, in what ways, through what mechanisms, in what contexts?
