Center for Contemplative Research

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 that fosters silence, stillness, solitude, and community,
• sustained training in rigorous methods of contemplative practice,
• the ideal conditions for expert meditators to make replicable discoveries about the nature and potentials of consciousness, and
• opportunities for collaborative research with scientists and philosophers.
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, grounded in ancient principles of nonviolence and compassion. And to share that knowledge with our world.
