Nabila Farhin Jahan explores the characteristics and effects of contemplative states and practices (e.g., mindfulness, self-inquiry, meditation) on human functioning and wellbeing. Personally, and as a clinical psychology graduate student at Virginia Commonwealth University, she is particularly interested in investigating impacts of social conditioning, language, thought- and identity-formation on mindful awareness, compassion, and healthy living. Residing in both Bangladesh and the US, with exposure to Eastern and Western cultures, Nabila integrates both contemplative lenses in her exploration. She also applies modern technology to investigate and disseminate contemplative teachings/practices, while promoting their accessibility to underserved populations through individual/group therapy and discussions.
