In this episode, Wendy speaks with clinical psychologist and contemplative researcher Sona Dimidjian. Sona's career has focused on using contemplative practices to improve mental health, with a focus on systems of inequality. Their conversation covers many topics, including:

  • her path to contemplative practice and research;

using collaborative teams in science to reduce bias;

how she applies mindfulness to help with postpartum depression;

working with young women around stereotypes about appearance;

embodied practices delivered through peer instruction;

community-engaged participatory research, working "with" and not "for";

creating digital platforms for more equitable dissemination of contemplative programs;

and how she brings a lens of anti-racism to her research and teaching.
