Mindfulness Study Opportunity: Uncover the Benefits of MBSR Practice!

Dan Haldman (PhD dissertation student), Marie Sester (Research Assistant), and Glenn Hartelius (Dissertation Chair) from California Institute of Integral Studies are conducting a study of adults living in the United States who have completed a mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) training at any time in the past, and who continue some level of informal or formal practice. 

In order to study how MBSR practice works, you will also be instructed in a simple practice that may be related to one of the ways that MBSR creates certain beneficial effects. You will be asked questions related to stressful and mindful qualities of experience, your experience of certain body-located sensations associated with each type of practice, and some comparison questions. 

The study is conducted entirely online and will involve 2-3 hours of time. The first part is a set of online questions, then comes an instructional session of up 60 minutes scheduled at your convenience and conducted over Zoom, and then a final set of online questions. On completion of the study, you will receive a $10 Starbucks card as thanks for your participation. The IRB at the California Institute of Integral Studies has approved this study.
