BACKGROUND - Mindfulness is getting its share of attention in mainstream news.  There seems to be no shortage of research on the benefits; reduced stress, enhanced memory, improved focus, enhanced self-insight, and increased cognitive flexibility to name a few.  According to American psychiatrist, Dr Edward Hallowell, in his Harvard Business Review article “Overloaded Circuits:  Why Smart People Underperform”  when we are overwhelmed with too many inputs, the brain goes in to “survival mode” leading to impulsive judgements, reduced flexibility, limited creativity, increased frustration and even hostility.  Clearly this presents challenges for individuals and organisations.   He goes on to say “modern office life and an increasingly common condition called ‘Attention Deficit Trait’
