Welcome to AMRA!
The American Mindfulness Research Association (AMRA) was founded in 2013. The Mindfulness Research Monthly scientific bulletin has been in circulation since 2009. Our mission is to support empirical and conceptual efforts to establish an evidence base for the process, practice, and construct of mindfulness; promote best evidence-based standards for the use of mindfulness research and its applications; facilitate professional development through grant giving; and disseminate newly gained knowledge to the public.
AMRA serves as a professional resource to the sciences and humanities, practice communities, and the broader public on mindfulness from the perspective of contemplative practice.
