"In designing Search Inside Yourself, a popular course at Google, early Google engineer Chade-Meng Tan has distilled emotional intelligence into a set of practical and proven tools and skills that anyone can learn and develop.
"Created in collaboration with a Zen master, a CEO, a Stanford University scientist, and Daniel Goleman (the guy who literally wrote the book on emotional intelligence), this program is grounded
in science and expressed in a way that even a skeptical, compulsively pragmatic, engineering-oriented brain like Meng's can process.
Center for Mindfulness
Since 1979, the Center for Mindfulness has been dedicated to investigating and understanding the effectiveness of mindfulness-based stress reduction
(MBSR) through pilot investigations, small studies, and large-scale research funded by the National Institutes of Health. Since the inception of the Stress Reduction Clinic, MBSR research at UMass and other academic medical centers has shown consistent, reliable, and reproducible demonstrations of major and clinically relevant reductions in medical and psychological symptoms across a wide range of medical diagnoses, including chronic pain conditions, over the eight weeks of the MBSR program.
