Research and scholarship to promote a kinder, wiser, more compassionate world
The USC Center for Mindfulness Science is committed to advancing the scientific understanding of mindfulness practices, and executing interdisciplinary, cutting-edge scientific investigations in the growing and important domain of the human mind. We aim to cultivate individual and societal awareness, well-being, and the relief of suffering through a scientific understanding of the impact of mindfulness and related practices on human consciousness and health.
As the world recovers from a pandemic, now, more than ever, your philanthropic support can provide seed money for pilot research into mindfulness in the neurophysiologic, clinical, and sociological sciences, including applications in addiction, depression, well-being and resilience both for student populations and the general public. The more we delve into the science, the more potential there will be to establish successful mindfulness initiatives that can make this world a better place.
We wholeheartedly welcome, and are grateful for, your generosity.
