Interested in the scientific study of meditation, mindfulness and contemplative practices?

Deric Bownds has provided a link to the Mind and Life Institute, which offers a quarterly bibliography with short descriptions of research done on the effects of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). I post these links here as well, for those interested in the science of meditation, mindfulness, and contemplative practices, as well as other bridges forming between Buddhism and science. I have studied and practiced mindfulness meditation and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I and a number of other skeptical science-oriented people that I know strongly endorse meditation, CBT, and their wonderful synergistic combination.
