The Wiley Blackwell Handbook of Mindfulness brings together the latest multi–disciplinary research on mindfulness from a group of international scholars. The essays here examine the two dominant approaches to Western mindfulness social psychological and Eastern–derived in order to compare, contrast, and integrate insights from the two perspectives. The first essays cover the origins and key theories of both branches. The contributors then discuss the implications for mindfulness across a range of fields, including consciousness and cognition, education, creativity, leadership and organizational behavior, law, medical practice and therapy, well–being, and sports. They map out future directions for the study and application of mindfulness at the individual, interpersonal, and global level. Ambitious in scope and comprehensive in coverage, this handbook bridges disparate perspectives and disciplines for a complete examination of this growing practice and its potential to increase human health and wellbeing in the future.
