Although mindfulness is an innate human capability and part of our human toolkit, it has only been used in health care for the past fifty years or so, and more recently in clinical settings. While the benefits of mindfulness meditation are clear from individual accounts, to verify that such benefits are not confined to particular practitioners but are obtainable by all who undergo relevant training, it is essential that rigorous studies be conducted.
Many such studies have indeed been carried out regarding the effectiveness of mindfulness, compassion and loving-kindness meditations, and other related practices. Here is a link to the Research page on the Breathworks UK website, with the most up-to-date studies.
We will be using this page to share other research papers and articles. It will be an eclectic assortment ranging from academic papers to personal accounts written by mindfulness practitioners. And do let us know if there are other kinds of articles you would like to see on this page.
Enjoy the reading.
