Two years ago, a group of interdisciplinary scholars gathered from around the world at the Mind & Life Institute for a self-organized, MLI-funded research workshop. They spent several days deeply exploring the topic of interoception—the sense of signals originating within the body. The topic of interoception is becoming increasingly important in cognitive science, as it becomes ever clearer that the mind and body are inseparable systems. At the end of the meeting, the group (including MLI Fellows Cathy Kerr, Norm Farb, and Anne Klein, as well as Varela Grantee Jennifer Daubenmier and Tim Gard) agreed to write a white paper placing interoception in the context of contemplative practice. This comprehensive paper has just been published in Frontiers in Psychology and promises to be highly influential as contemplative studies progresses. We are thrilled to have been able to support this effort!
