“Mindfulness and wisdom can be thought of as phenomena … as aspirations to be pursued, as lived experiences and, particularly, within professional life, as practices”(Higgs & Tasker, 2017, p. 188). Mindfulness, in particular, can be considered as both an attitude and a practice, linking thoughts and feeling with practical action. As a primary example, the concept of mindfulness as it developed within Buddhism occurred through the practical experiences of Buddha himself as he sat beneath a tree contemplating life and how to best address its vicissitudes.
