Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This qualitative study explored the effect of mindful meditation on reduction of stress in young adults through an online survey of open-ended questions using Qualtrics. Participants were recruited from a closed Facebook meditation community and various social media outlets. Qualitative data was analyzed using content analysis until saturation was reached. Multiple researchers and data collection from multiple sources ensured triangulation, rigor, and trustworthiness of the data.
