    In defense of the purpose of this video, I do believe it is not strictly a spiritual or religious exercise, so please, if you would, refrain from inserting a strictly religious obligation to such a simple step in developing a cognitive mental skill. In fact, in other videos that correspond to this one (in the same series, might I add), Schwartz extrapolates on the spiritual significance of mindfulness with respect to our proximity with the Holy Spirit. The purpose of this exercise, if I'm not mistaken, is to clear the mind of immediate stressors and to help shape our thought processes in order to heighten our ability to think with a relaxed and focused mental preset, not to introduce any sort of biblically-controversial mysticism. So please, excuse me if I have offended anyone. I simply feel that this video should be taken into consideration with regards to what it teaches and why it is important for it to be taught. If there are any complications with the significance of mindfulness, maybe you should look further into the series.

    Sounds like more mystic nonsense to me. How about teaching some one to focus on the Word of God and not their nostrils? Is that too much to ask? Biola, you are better than this.
