As you consider taking a mindfulness-based course with us and beginning or extending your engagement with meditation and mindfulness practices, knowing yourself and the factors that might impact you will be supportive for the most beneficial experience.

The benefits and potential of mindfulness-based programs are well documented. As two of the most researched mindfulness programs, MBSR and MBCT are known for their rigor, depth, and adherence to both scientific inquiry and pedagogical integrity.

Participation in MBSR and MBCT also involves a risk of physical or mental injury. Participants are responsible for assessing the risks and determining whether they are physically and mentally capable of participating in MBSR and MBCT.

Brown University is committed to excellence, rigor and integrity in its research, teaching and mindfulness-based programs. Our focus is always on the participants’ safety and best interests.
