MENEZES, Carolina Baptista. Scientific event on meditation and mindfulness in Brazil: an experience report. Temas psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.1, pp. 143-152. ISSN 1413-389X.

Meditation practices have been increasingly studied, adapted and applied in the west, particularly in the field of psychological science. Despite the fact that the area has already conquered expressive dissemination and visibility regarding its global scientific production, this is still an incipient field in Brazil. This report aimed to inform about and describe two interrelated scientific events about meditation and mindfulness that took place in the year of 2014 in São Paulo, Brazil, and of which I had the opportunity to take part as mediator, lecturer and participant. In addition to generally contextualizing and characterizing both events, this report explored some of the themes presented, especially those relevant to psychological science. Taken together, activities carried out in both events allowed a rich discussion and reflection concerning scientifically and clinically relevant issues, contributing to the rise, acknowledgment and advancement of the area in Brazil. It is hoped that more events about this theme are created and held in national territory, especially aiming that the study of meditation/mindfulness becomes formalized as a Brazilian psychological scientific area.

Palabras clave : Meditation; mindfulness; experience report; psychological science.
