Integrating Contemplative and Well-Being Practices for Student Success

Document Type

Conference Session

Publication Date



Student success requires a holistic approach that facilitates more than the achievement of academic outcomes, but which also integrates purpose, meaning, wellness, and character development into their studies and their lives. Recent research shows the learning and health benefits of mindfulness. We will provide an overview of contemplative pedagogies, share development programming, and present a case study from one of our classes. Participants will also experience a practice they can adapt for working with their students. They will leave with a strong rationale for incorporating contemplative practices into learning spaces, ideas for applying contemplative practices, and a list of resources.
