Collaborating to Offer the Benefits of Evidence-based, Evidence-informed, and Innovative Mindfulness Programs

The Mindfulness Center at Brown (MCB), the Brown School of Professional Studies (SPS), and the Mindfulness and Health Institute (MHI) are collaborating to offer evidence-based and evidence-informed mindfulness programs in a student-centered setting. These three distinct institutions collaborate with shared values, collective knowledge, and unique perspectives while expanding access, richness, and impact.

The Mindfulness Center at Brown University brings together outstanding researchers, scholars and educators  with the mission to: (1) conduct rigorous, empirically driven research about the effects of mindfulness on health; and (2) translate research findings into innovative, cutting-edge teaching for Brown students and beyond.

The School of Professional Studies at Brown University currently offers a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Teacher Training Certificate as well as a portfolio of programs, including master’s degrees and a growing suite of executive education and online offerings. The Certificate in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Teaching is a multi-course journey and an opportunity to learn how to teach MBSR from highly-experienced MBSR instructors and teacher-trainers.

The Mindfulness and Health Institute offers mindfulness programs and events including Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), retreats, and other innovative and traditional mindfulness programs. The Mindfulness and Health Institute works cooperatively with researchers at the Mindfulness Center at Brown and with other researchers to continue inquiry into mindfulness programs. They also collaborate with the School of Professional Studies at Brown to offer prerequisite programs and retreats for the Certificate in MBSR Teaching.

Our collective goals are to research and offer programs that improve individual lives, further the dissemination of these programs through direct program offerings, training teachers, and organizational effectiveness.  

We hope you will join us on this journey of discovery.
