Mindfulness Center

We are at a time in history when mindfulness research is rapidly expanding, and mindfulness has become a $1 billion industry in the United States alone. There is great need for methodologically rigorous research to help determine whether reported impacts of mindfulness on health are fad or fact, as well as the provision of evidence-based services to match the greatly increasing demand by community members, including schools, hospitals and businesses. The Mindfulness Center at Brown University leads initiatives in these areas.
