The Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin–Madison

Our research, rooted in neuroscience, comes down to one basic question: What constitutes a healthy mind?  To begin to answer this, we’ve investigated the science of emotions, contemplative practices and qualities of mind we suspect affect well-being, including attention, resilience, equanimity, savoring positive emotions, kindness, compassion, gratitude and empathy.  https://centerhealthyminds.org

The American Mindfulness Research Association's mission is to support empirical and conceptual efforts to establish an evidence base for the process, practice, and construct of mindfulness; promote best standards for and ethical use of mindfulness research and applications; and facilitate mindfulness-related dialogue and discovery.  https://goamra.org
