< Previous Week | Next Week >

Every week staff, students and members of the local community come together to practice Mindfulness i.e. present moment awareness, without judgement. 

 Sessions are free and led by staff, students and members of the community who have been practicing meditation for many years, though are not necessarily teachers of Mindfulness.  So while these sessions do not include instruction in Mindfulness, they are suitable for people with no previous knowledge of Mindfulness as well as those who have been practising for many years. 

 

Together we share a space in the moment, without judgement!  Sessions tend to follow a similar format, starting with a guided body scan, followed by a short break and then a silent meditation.

On Thursday evenings, mindfulness practitioners volunteer to share their Mindful Journeys and the role Mindful practice plays in their lives. Speakers include people who work, study, teach and research at NUI Galway and other universities, as well as practitioners from industry and public service around the world. 

Each Thursday will include a shared meditation practice, a sharing of knowledge and experiences, and a discussion between 5:10 pm and ending at 5:50pm, with the option to remain afterwards for further discussion. See http://www.nuigalway.ie/mindfulway/practice/ for details!

 Interested in presenting?  If yes, please send your bio, photo, a proposed title for your session along with a brief description to ann.t.walsh@nuigalway.ie, along with dates (Thursdays!) that would suit you to present!

Mindful Way @ NUI Galway

 This conference will gather senior policymakers, public servants, academics, and other experts to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the policy-making process in Ireland with a view to suggesting how the quality of policy-making might be improved. Although much analytical attention has been paid to the effects of public policies in Ireland and to the macroeconomic context in which they are set, there has been very little analysis of the policy-making process: How policies are conceived, designed, implemented, communicated, and reviewed. This conference is an attempt to address this gap. The conference will also feature the launch of a new Whitaker Institute report by economist Jim O’Leary on water charges and the local property tax. 

This conference is aimed at a general audience and will appeal to everyone with an interest in how public policy is made in Ireland. Register here: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/how-not-to-do-public-policy-tickets-48552806752
