The Contemplative Sciences Center and Hereford Residential College have launched a new partnership to create a living-learning community that promotes student wellbeing and flourishing at the University and beyond. Incorporating contemplation into students’ daily lives is vital to this effort, and starting this 2018-19 academic year, Hereford added a focus on mindfulness and mind-body practices to the residential college’s existing foci on environmental sustainability and social awareness.
At CSC, we are often asked to describe the positive impacts of incorporating contemplative practices into our lives—from the way we see ourselves and our relationships, to creating balance, managing stress, and succeeding in our careers. But because the benefits are diverse and because there are so many practices to explore, it is a challenging question to answer.
The University offers many academic courses that embody contemplative themes. We've curated a list of these classes which include topics in Eastern religion, education, medicine, and more—from Climbing as Mindfulness (KINE 1450) to Mindfulness in Health and Human Development.

Teaching is one of the most rewarding professions, but it can also be one of the most stressful. Mindfulness for Teachers will introduce students to a series of evidence-based practical skills that will help them cultivate the inner resources needed to support their students' social, emotional, and academic growth.
