International Institute of Scientific Meditation

IISCIM is a not-for-profit, charitable, educational, research Institute, which serves to promote meditation as a scientific discipline, develop awareness about scientific meditation as a tool for well-being and healthy lifestyle, and spread the benefits of scientific meditation through well documented research.

The vision of the Founders of IISCIM is to build better enlightened human beings with greater intelligence and empathy, a better society beyond the barriers of race and religion, and a better world where people come together on the ground of oneness.

We aim to provide the best evidence based scientific meditation practices for the well-being of people. At IISCIM we strive to provide opportunities for active engagement with scientific meditation through talks, lectures, symposiums, workshops and programs tailored to individuals, corporate bodies, schools, tertiary, and community groups. Our courses and teachings neither asserts, requires, nor refutes any particular religious or metaphysical belief.

You can help us by adding your voice to our campaign and encourage people to seek shelter in the calm that already exists within them. Share our stories, through your blogs and posts or via your social media channels or get your local community group involved.

Our mission to meditation is to support empirical and conceptual efforts to:
1. Provide the best evidence based scientific meditation practices for the well-being of people;
2. Establish an evidence base for the process, practice, and construct for scientific meditation;
3. Promote best evidence-based standards for the use of meditation research and its applications; and
4. Facilitate discovery and professional developments.

We work in schools, hospitals, colleges, prisons, and community settings, as well as public, private sector organizations teaching scientific meditation to people of all ages.
