PostSubject: Mind Science - Contemplative Science   Fri Aug 10, 2012 12:47 pm

The Mind and Life Institute was the first official organization that looked at the positive effects of meditation, hosted conferences, etc.

Now there are other kinds of institutes now that look at meditation / mindfulness from a scientific and health point of view.
