As a mindfulness practitioner and 10-year teacher of Mindfulnes-Based Stress Reduction, I tend to disagree with Dr. Hofmann in regard to the comment referenced above (although I was pleased by the publication of the article). I feel that openness and a willingness to engage in practice far outweighs any need for significant intelligence or understanding. It is not an intellectual concept to be grasped with the mind, nearly so much as it is a quality of attention. Indeed, my experience is that people who are trying to hard to "get it" intellectually gain less from my classes than those who are willing to, in the tradition of the hokey-pokey, put "their whole selves in" and see what it has to offer.
