Thanks to Ulco Visser and his Impact Foundation, we were able to complete an initial study of my Basic Mindfulness System at Harvard Medical School. We used categories from the Basic Mindfulness Grid in order to investigate “Neurobiological Substrates Underlying Varieties of Restful Experience and Modalities of Awareness in Mindfulness Practice.” The principle investigator is my friend Dave Vago.
Thanks also to participants. Many of those who participated are quite web saavy so the event has generated some Internet buzz. If you’re interested, check out the links below:
