Summary of week 3 Theory

In this video Prof Chris Goto-Jones summarizes the module on philosophy and mindfulness.

This week our purpose has been to explore some of the ways in which different people at different times have attempted to understand something akin to mindfulness.

This has been another week complex theories and philosophical concepts. Once again I encourage you to go over any parts of this week’s materials that are giving you trouble. At the same time, it’s important for you to know that our purpose this week hasn’t been to master all the philosophy ever conceived anywhere. That is probably more than a lifetime’s work.

And remember that your mindfulness journey is your own and the more sincere the effort you put into it, the more revelatory will be your findings as you move along.
