Author(s):

Abstract:

This study examines the impact of mindfulness meditation on the self-concept of 30 married women from the Amroha district of Uttar Pradesh. Using the Self-concept Scale made by Rastogi the self-concept was determined. The participants rated various dimensions of self-concept before and after a one-week mindfulness meditation training program. Results indicate significant improvements in Health and Sex Appropriateness, Abilities, Self-confidence, Self-acceptance, Worthiness, Present, Past and Future, and Beliefs and Convictions dimensions following the intervention. These findings suggest that mindfulness meditation holds promise as an effective intervention for enhancing self-concept and overall well-being in married women. Further research may explore long-term effects and generalizability to diverse populations.
