This chapter proposes several alternative conceptualizations and methodologies regarding the measurement of mindfulness. Contemporary approaches to the measurement of the construct are reviewed and critically analyzed. Following this, several procedures are detailed to introduce novel measurement approaches. This chapter argues for a critical reexamination of how the field of contemplative science currently measures the construct of mindfulness in both basic and applied settings, and proposes innovative conceptualizations and methodologies for how to advance the scientific investigation of mindfulness.
