“For several years now, the overlapping worlds of business and self-help have been abuzz about mindfulness meditation.”

“The relentless pursuit of the traditional measures of success - money and power - had resulted in an epidemic of burnout, stress-related illnesses, relationship problems.” (end quotes)

Q:  Can you continue to pursue the ‘traditional measures of success’  (money and power), and at the same time enter the world of well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving?  (Was it Jesus who said that you cannot serve God and Mammon?)

In this article in the July 6 New Yorker Magazine, notice that several ‘money and power’ worshipers dropped out of that after taking Puddicombe’s course.
