Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop a web site and to test a brief Internet based lesson in the use of meditation as a method for stress reduction. Subjects were self-selected through the utilization of Internet Search portals. The greater percentage of respondents reported they experienced a high level of satisfaction with the lesson. All of those who did not consent to be subjects took the lesson, indicating an interest in the subject and perhaps it's presentation format. It appears that this simple form of web based instruction could be a useful tool for building Internet based health education and health promotion and as such requires further study. The lesson was successful in helping most of the subjects reduce their stress, as reported by a high percentage of survey respondents, and so forms a template for further investigation.
