Mindfulness & Meditation

Published research has repeatedly shown that meditation, in general, and MBSR, in particular, can be a powerful adjunct to the conventional medical treatment of many conditions. Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson’s book, Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body, provides a terrific overview of the research to date, indicating both its promise and limitations.

Below are three websites that are regularly updated to show current research:
