Abstract

This article explores Franklian psychology as it relates to personal meaning and mindfulness practice. Meaning cultivation is seen as a principle outcome of mindfulness practice, and happiness is seen as an organic experience that emerges from meaningful living. Recommendations for clinicians are discussed, with mindfulness presented as a meaning-based intervention that holistically addresses both meaning through doing and meaning through being. The article concludes with questions for further inquiry.
