Resource:MLRN

Name: Resource:MLRN
Description: A project of the Mind and Life Institute, fosters multidisciplinary communication about scientific research on meditation and other contemplative practices.

It is dedicated to fostering dialog and research at the highest possible level between modern science and the great living contemplative traditions, especially Buddhism. It builds on a deep commitment to the power and value of both of these ways of advancing knowledge and their potential to alleviate suffering.
Membership is free, and this loose affiliation of scientists, meditators, and people interested in research promotes opportunities for researchers and meditators to communicate together. All perspectives, scientific fields, and styles of meditation are welcome.
The MLRN includes cognitive neuroscientists who skillfully use scientific methods in the study of meditation, meditation scholars interested in scientific interfaces, and people who can help support meditation research. MLRN members are likely to be recruited to serve as advisors, referees, participants, and collaborators in upcoming studies on meditation. The MLRN encompasses a variety of meditation practices, and incorporates both contemplative and scientific approaches. The MLRN includes a low-volume, moderated electronic announcement list. This list maintains a high signal-to-noise ratio by distributing infrequent but important messages to large numbers of recipients. Members of this announcement list receive bibliographic updates on recent publications, announcements of upcoming conferences, calls for papers for special-issue journals and conference symposia, synopses of recent meetings, announcements of relevant email lists, websites, and other resources, and other announcements appropriate for widespread distribution.

Sponsors: The Hershey Family Foundation has been patron since 1990. This Institute has received generous financial support from the Fetzer Institute, The Nathan Cummings Foundation, Branco Weiss, Adam Engle, Michael Sautman, Mr. and Mrs. R. Thomas Northcote, Christine Austin, Dennis Perlman, Marilyn and the late Don Gevirtz, Michele Grennon, Klaus Hebben, Joe and Mary Ellyn Sensenbrenner, and Edwin and Adrienne Joseph.
