The Science of Mindfulness:

history, case studies and more...

You may have heard of mindfulness or read some of the recent media coverage about it, but do you know why or how it's been proven to have such a profound and positive impact on our mental wellbeing?

A great deal of this media interest has arisen as a result of the growing body of rigorous research evidence regarding the potential benefits of mindfulness for adults and young people alike. These include randomised control trials and neuroscientific studies.

Professor Katherine Weare (Emeritus Professor, Southampton and Exeter Universities) observed in her award-winning research summary: Evidence for the Impact of Mindfulness on Children and Young People, schools who engage in mindfulness are likely to see ‘beneficial results in emotional wellbeing, mental health, ability to learn and even the physical health' of their students.
