Not knowing much about mindfulness, I appreciate this article as an introduction, and it has left me wanting to know more.  Unsure of how I feel about the role of mindfulness in the mental health field, I started to consider what kind of role mindfulness can play in holistic education and more generally in life.  Throughout the article I questioned how I could better use mindfulness in my life and found many connections to what Rendon said about her own life experiences in Sentipensante Pedagogy.  I think that after exploring mindfulness more that it could become a piece in our puzzle of holism.

I love this term for our project!  And look forward to hearing more about how you connect this article to Rendon's text.
