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. A blueprint for creating a Mindful University does not currently exist, just the conviction and passion of those who believe this is a worthy endeavour. In 2016 a group of people came together to work towards achieving this worthy intention.  The group represents the NUI Galway community including administrators, students, academic teaching staff, academic researchers and the community. This group believes a Mindful University starts with the actual practice of Mindfulness, so encouraging the practice of Mindfulness among staff, students and members of the local community has become a priority.  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. Arising from this is a growing interest in research in this field across all disciplines, along with a growing desire across disciplines to bring Mindfulness into classrooms and lecture halls.
