Current Active Meditation Research Studies

Study #01: Meditation Institute International

Meditation Institute International is looking for subjects for an on-going research study of meditation. The Institute is seeking meditators, non-meditators and those who have tried but discontinued meditation. Survey findings will help create meditation curriculum and help those seeking instruction find the right method. Currently, there are many types of meditation available to the public, often with a one-size-fits-all approach. It is practically impossible to determine which method is best suited to a given individual. Unfortunately, meditation may be unsuccessful even when the student is sincere and motivated. The Institute hopes to find out the reasons why.

Please take a few minutes to help. The free test is interesting and fun. Just go to and send your emailed results to You can participate anonymously and there is no obligation to share any personal information. All data will be processed by Survey Monkey and erased after the study is completed. After sending in your personality details, you will receive instructions about the survey.
