La Trobe Research

Research Study into Mindfulness, Meditation, and Well Being 

In the School of Psychological Science at La Trobe University, we're conducting research on the relationship between a three-week, online course of guided mindfulness meditations and well being. During these meditations, you would practice techniques such as becoming more aware of your breathing, or focusing attention on developing an attitude of compassion for yourself and others. We're looking for participants who are older than 18, who have Internet access, and who have experienced a hurtful event in which a person they know treated them unfairly or hurt them a lot (e.g., a disagreement with a friend or spouse). Prior experience with meditation is not required but people who have previously practiced meditation are very also welcome to partake. If you are interested in participating in the study, or would like further information, please contact Kara Boscarato by phone or email (0435 859 993 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Participants will receive a $30 gift voucher and will go into the draw to win one of 10 double passes to the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra once they complete the full three-week course.
