The Mindful Way at NUI Galway

In October 2015, NUI Galway stated its intention to become a Mindful University through supporting an initiative known as Mindful Way @ NUI Galway.  An initial conference and a subsequent series of monthly Mindfulness Meditation Classes led by Tibetan Monk, Thubten Gelong, got Mindful Way @ NUI Galway off to a great start in academic year 2015/16.  Since then over 800 students, staff and members of the local community engage with the initiative on an ongoing basis. 

Many attend weekly Mindful Shared Practice sessions on the main NUI Galway campus, as well as across many of our satellite campuses in Letterkenny, Sligo, Shannon as well as the University Hospital Galway.  This along with the annual Mindful Journeys Symposium, frequent guest speakers and other events, means  NUI Galway is at the heart of the practice of Mindfulness in Ireland and internationally.
