About Us

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 Semester 1 of academic year 2016/17, a group of people who have been practicing meditation for many years, has come together to work on how to proceed 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 and so encouraging the practice of Mindfulness among staff, students and members of the local community has become priority.  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.
