Where can I find evidence-based research on mindfulness?

Several mindfulness-based interventions have been studied to determine their utility in improving health outcomes.

For a brief and compelling introduction to the brain science behind mindfulness meditation, see a 2012 TEDxCambridge talk in which Dr. Sara Lazar of Harvard Medical School describes her research on meditation and increased cortical thickness.
