Before I jump to the subject of this brief post, I wanted to pause to say a bit about yesterday’s webinar with Jack Kornfield. It turns out, the webinar was a splash of interesting content mixed with promotional information about an upcoming series with Jack. Suffice it to say, I was able to work on some other things while it ran in the background (which may say more about my attention span than the quality of the webinar!).
Now, to the subject of this post. Some of you may be familiar with the Mindfulness Research Guide; I discovered it only a few months ago (and already can’t keep up with all the interesting reading!). In addition to the monthly research updates on mindfulness, you’ll find:
- Ways to measure mindfulness: “A list of the empirical measures of mindfulness, which are followed by associated psychometric and scale development studies”;
- Links to review articles (or the abstracts thereof) that examine the evidence for mindfulness-based interventions in improving health outcomes;
- A list of universities and centers that conduct mindfulness research; and
- An archive of the monthly research updates.
Here’s a link to the Mindfulness Research Guide home page: http://www.mindfulexperience.org/. Enjoy!
