Mindfulness meditation reduces guilt and prosocial reparation

HAFENBRACK Andrew, LAPALME Matthew, SOLAL Isabelle

The present research investigates whether and how mindfulness meditation influences the guilt-driven tendency to repair harm caused to others. Through a series of eight experiments (N > 1,400), we demonstrate that state mindfulness cultivated via focused-breathing meditation can dampen the relationship between transgressions and the desire to engage in reparative prosocial behaviors.
