    At the Sept. CIRG meeting, I met quite a few people interested the topic mindfulness, so I thought I would start a post and see what everyone is doing in regards to mindfulness-related research. I will start:

    My research interests includes the intersection of mindfulness, brain networks, and violence.

    I am currently working on the following:

    1). I am conducting research with a faculty member in psychology investigating the impact of a one-time loving kindness meditation on sympathetic responses invoked by violent imagery.

    2.) I am also working with a faculty member from the University of St. Louis Missouri to investigate the relationship of self-compassion and various factors including Afrocentrism, Masculinity, and Antisocial Behavior among African American men.

    3). I am working with several faculty members across campus to develop a research line to utilize mindfulness practices as an intervention to stress, implicit bias, and impulsive violence among police officers.

    4). I have previously conducted research studying the relationship between meditation, self-compassion, and predictors of criminality among prisoners.

    I am curious to see what other faculty members on campus are doing.

    Quite interesting topic.  I’m quite often curious of my brain and imaginations.
