Mission Statement

In order to catalyze a revolution in the mind sciences and nurture a renaissance in the world’s great contemplative traditions, the Center for Contemplative Research provides a conducive environment, combined with sustained training in rigorous methods of contemplative practice, to enable expert meditators to make replicable discoveries about the nature and potentials of consciousness, while engaging in collaborative research with cognitive and physical scientists. In the spirit of radical empiricism, while challenging unquestioned assumptions, we seek to discover the deepest sources of mental health, well-being, and environmental flourishing. And to share that knowledge with our world.
