As a facilitator, one is often surprised by who benefits most and least. Furthermore, the ability to be mindful in daily life (i.e., trait mindfulness) varies considerably between people as a function of age, education level (Bränström et al. 2011), and meditation practice (Josefsson et al. 2011) being the major moderators.

However, whether levels of trait mindfulness influence the outcomes of mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) is not clear. de Vibe et al. ( 2015) found no connection between baseline mindfulness and the effect of MBI on outcome measures with medical and psychology students, while another study reported that students with higher levels of baseline mindfulness increased most in mindfulness and other outcome measures after MBI (Shapiro et al. 2011). …
