Are you interested in how mindfulness meditation can be used to reduce the impacts of the covid-19 pandemic on pain, suffering and wellbeing?

We are looking for participants aged 18 years or older for an online research study investigating how mindfulness meditation changes cognitive processes associated with coronavirus-related coping strategies and the experience of pain. You do not have to be experiencing pain to participate in this study, however individuals with recurrent and chronic pain are especially encouraged to participate. 

Participation involves an online survey that includes a series of questions before and after a 20-minute audio guided mindfulness meditation training session. The study can be completed in under 45 minutes. You will learn about and practice mindfulness meditation as a part of participating in this study.

Participant benefits:

  • Learn to meditate
  • May experience benefits to their health and wellbeing as a result of the meditation practice
  • Go into the draw to win one of five $50 gift cards (drawn monthly)


  • at least 18 years of age
