Center for Mindfulness

MeditationThe Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society is a visionary, global leader in mind-body medicine. For thirty years, it has been a pioneer in the integration of mindfulness meditation and other mindfulness-based approaches in mainstream medicine and health care through patient care, research, academic medical and professional education, and into the broader society through diverse outreach and public service initiatives. Directed by Saki F. Santorelli, EdD, since 2000 and founded in 1995 by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, the Center is an outgrowth of the acclaimed Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Clinic – the oldest and largest academic medical center-based stress reduction program in the world.

The Center offers a number of pathways for people to experience and deepen the effects of mindfulness in their personal and professional lives.

Your gift to the Annual Fund has the power to help individuals improve their ability to relax, reduce pain levels, improve self-esteem, cope more effectively with stress and have more energy and enthusiasm for life.

You can make your gift to the Center for Mindfulness conveniently through our secure online web page or you can mail your check, payable to UMMF, to the Development Office.
