References to 'mindfulness' in relation to mediation and dispute resolution are becoming increasingly common. As with any term we are constantly exposed to, there is a risk that 'familiarity breeds contempt' and that rather than understanding what the term means (and its potential benefits) we presume understanding by association and look no further. This article seeks to address this by offering some definitions, and then putting forward explanations of the reported benefits and applications of mindfulness. It moves from the general to the specific, converting a buzzword into an exploration from which mediators can draw informed conclusions. It also dares to suggest a course of action which mediators can follow to familiarise themselves with the practice of mindfulness, and so enhance their own development and that of their practice.
