Autonomic and affective mediators of the relationship between mindfulness and opioid craving among chronic pain patients.

Prescription opioid misuse among chronic pain patients is undergirded by self-regulatory deficits, affective distress, and opioid-cue reactivity.

The Nondual Awareness Dimensional Assessment (NADA): New tools to assess nondual traits and states of consciousness occurring within and beyond the context of meditation

This article details the development of two measures of nondual awareness, the Nondual Awareness Dimensional Assessment–Trait (NADA-T) and the Nondual Awareness Dimensional Assessment–State (NADA-S). Principal component analysis (N = 528) revealed two, interpretable dimensions of the NADA-T: self-transcendence and bliss. Bifactor exploratory structural equation modeling, conducted in three independent samples (N = 338, N = 221, N = 166), indicated that both NADA-T dimensions were components of a second-order nondual awareness construct.
