The ACLJ, a conservative Christian legal organization led by Jay Sekulow (who is a member of Donald Trump's personal legal team), is launching a "multifaceted legal campaign" against the teaching of secular mindfulness practices in public schools. 

Excerpt: "The ACLJ argues that the programs constitute Buddhist indoctrination because the mindfulness practices appear to be similar to Buddhist religious practices.... Proponents of secular mindfulness say mindfulness is not a Buddhist practice; it is a contemplative practice used in religious traditions around the world by many different names. Most programs in schools today are based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, a scientifically-validated program developed by clinicians."
