General discussion of issues related to Theravada Meditation, e.g. meditation postures, developing a regular sitting practice, skillfully relating to difficulties and hindrances, etc.
Hello Ben, all,
I know that Ben O., and probably others here, have an interest in scientific research about mindfulness as well as information about its therapeutic uses. This site deals specifically with "clinical mindfulness" (described as "meditation-based approaches to mental health"). It may be of interest to you if you are not already familiar with it. http://clinical-mindfulness.org/
All the best,

Thank you for sharing this. I have almost finished my training as teacher of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy / Stress Reduction. This may be a valuable resource.

Thank you Kevin, I appreciate your thoughtfulness in sharing this information.
I will also pass the link on to my wife who shares my interest, but has a professional interest in the field.

What is the use of his knowledge
pertaining to the number of insects in the whole world?
Rather, inquire into his knowledge of
that which is to be practised by us
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.

Níl sa saol seo ach ceo
There is naught in this life but mist
Is ní bheimid beo ach seal beag gearr.
And we will not be alive but a short hard time.
