Mindfulness-based practices can benefit people physically and psychologically; and they may be particularly beneficial for vulnerable populations who face socio-economic challenges and lack access to quality healthcare. Societies are increasingly multicultural with rich blended spiritual and cultural histories that can serve as either bridges or barriers to mindfulness-based practices. The challenge is to find the salient and common cross-cultural teachings and attitudinal foundations that can support the cultivation of mindfulness-based practices for people across all socio-economic strata that embrace diverse cultural experiences.
