Alexandra, I like your text very much! Though mindfulness is a practice itself, it is embedded in various ‘wisdom teachings or systems’ such as Buddhism or others. To avoid trapping into the pitfal you described so well, one should see mindfulness as what it is: a first step followed by others. Personal liberation and development isn’t as simple as just being mindfull but requires follow the path.. Ain’t easy.
