Mind and Life Summer Research Institute
The Mind & Life Summer Research Institute (SRI), held annually at the Garrison Institute in New York, is a week-long immersive experience designed to foster collaborative research in behavioral science, neuroscience, clinical science and the humanities, based on a process of inquiry, dialogue and collaboration with contemplative practitioners and scholars. The long-term objective is to advance the training of a new generation of interdisciplinary scholars interested in exploring the influence of contemplative practice on mind, behavior, brain function and health, including the potential role of contemplative methods in shaping and enriching human experience and consciousness. SRI participants become eligible to apply for the Mind & Life Francisco J. Varela Research Grants.
