Competing Interests

The authors have read the journal’s policy and have the following potential competing interests: EC is the Director of the Mindfulness Center at Brown University. The Mindfulness Center, a non-profit entity, has an Education Unit that provides mindfulness-based program delivery to the general public for fees. Dr. Loucks’s salary is not tied to quantity, or content, of programs offered through the Mindfulness Center, and this therefore does not alter our adherence to PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials. There are no patents, products in development or marketed products associated with this research to declare.
