Mindfulness in Public Policy to be explored at NUI Galway conference

Impact of Mindfulness in Health, Education and Justice Systems to be the subject of “Ireland’s Mindful Journey” Event on June 14th

The development and impact of policy relating to mindfulness will be explored at a conference in NUI Galway on June 14th.  The “Ireland’s Mindful Journey” event will explore how mindfulness is steadily making its way into our Health, Education and Justice systems from the ground up, and examine policy in these areas.  

Mindful Way @ NUI Galway was established in 2015, and the community has grown to approximately 800 staff, students and members of the local community who participate in shared practice and events across campuses in Galway, Shannon and Letterkenny.  Mindful activities relating to teaching, research and the practice of mindfulness are ongoing at the University, where mindful spaces are also being created.

Speaking about the forthcoming event, Professor Lokesh Joshi, Vice President for Research at NUI Galway said: “As mental health is becoming more of a priority issue for governments and policy makers, this conference will share experiences of mindfulness programmes nationally and internationally with a view to developing best practice and informing policy.
