Meet Your Teacher

Elizabeth Stanley, PhD

Elizabeth Stanley, PhD

Dr. Elizabeth Stanley is the creator of Mindfulness-based Mind Fitness Training (MMFT)®, taught to thousands in civilian and military high-stress environments. MMFT® research has been featured on 60 Minutes, the ABC Evening News, NPR, and in Time magazine. She is a US Army veteran with service in Asia and Europe and holds degrees from Yale, Harvard, and MIT. She’s also a certified practitioner of Somatic Experiencing®, a body-based trauma therapy, and is the author of the acclaimed book Widen the Window: Training Your Brain and Body to Thrive During Stress and Recover from Trauma.

The Research Behind MMFT

Mindfulness-based Mind Fitness Training (MMFT) has been tested through rigorous neuroscience and stress physiology research, funded by the US Department of Defense and other foundations. Since 2008, Dr. Elizabeth Stanley and her team have conducted four studies with combat troops preparing to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan—with strong positive results published in top-tier scientific journals.

Some key benefits supported by the research: improved cognitive performance, greater sustained attention, better working memory, lower perceived stress, less emotional reactivity, faster and more complete recovery from stressful contexts, improved sleep, greater pain tolerance, and fewer negative emotions.

While these benefits were documented among troops preparing for deployment, they are available to everyone! For those of us facing less stressful circumstances than combat, the beneficial outcomes are likely to be even greater.
