Solid science is the necessary basis for a credible center and university. With this in mind, we have utilized $1.9 M in collaborative research funding to develop an evidence-based, manualized mindfulness intervention. Inner Resources for Stress has been the subject of 9 clinical trials, 4 of which were randomized controlled trials & a Stanford neuroimaging study, and has witnessed national and international adoption, numerous published articles, and 2 books in preparation.

The development of Inner Resources Center prides itself on PAU student participation on funded grants, dissertations & publication co-authorships.


Inner Resources for Stress has national recognition as a Best Practice Caregiving. To us, best practice means it meets the scientific standard and it generates opportunities through consultation, training, and research collaboration.
