I notice an Australian 'Mindful' organisation advertising a part
time job for a content producer. I’m not looking for work, though I know others
who are. It’s an organisation I admire. How wonderful it could be to be part of
something committed to “dedicating our efforts to something greater than
“We are the change cultivating consciousness, self-care
So how did this job stack up compared to working for a bog standard unmindful company?
The job description has the usual go-getter wording which
seems at odd to the basis of mindfulness. For example, it enthuses the
successful participant to multi-task, work out of hours and go above and beyond
the call of duty.
It also fails to mention the salary range and terms and
conditions of such a position.
Is this mindful work or just the same old capitalism,
dressing exploitation up is the latest version of New Age speak?
