We are currently conducting the CCC study to learn how people are engaging with contemplative practice to cope with stress during the Covid-19 pandemic. The goal of this study is to assess changes in stress, mental health, and telomere length (a marker of cellular aging) in relation to meditation experience as the effects of the pandemic unfold over the coming year.
You are invited to participate in this study if you are over the age of 18 and have some meditation experience. You do not need to have a regular meditation practice. All experience levels are welcome.
This study can be completed entirely from home. If you choose to participate, we will ask you to fill out questionnaires online. We will also ask you to collect two small samples of blood by pricking your finger. We will use these samples to assess changes in telomere length, a biological indicator of stress.
You can earn up to $300 for your participation.
