  1. Hello Dr Shonin
    We met some years ago when I worked at Rampton Hospital/Nott Uni. I have since retired but retain my interest and practice in meditation for offenders. I am preparing a workshop on this topic and would like to access your important papers in the last 5 years or so, in order to get up to date.
    Could you email me copies of your offending -related mindfulness papers and reviews? I have no journal access as I now live in rural Norfolk!
    I hope this would not be too onerous a task. Good luck with your work at NTU.

  2. Dear Dr. Shonin,

    I have been following your studies and read the study on ‘Can Mindfulness Meditation Induce Psychotic Episodes?’. I have several questions with regard to the research and I was wondering if I could reach out to you on email. Would you be so kind as to drop me a message with your email address.

    Thank you so much!
