"Mindfulness is paying attention to your life, here and now, with kindness and curiosity"
- Amy Saltzman
We acknowledge that we are on the traditional territory and homelands of the Luiseño/Payómkawichum
people. For more information please go to www.csusm.edu/cicsc.
|We wish to foster a community of awareness and appreciation for our own and other's
experiences through contemplative practices, pedagogy and research. We affirm that
in an increasingly interdependent world, learning to listen with kindness and curiosity generates compassion, connectedness
and the ability to see the world from diverse perspectives.

Announcing Mindful CSUSM's Summer Conference 2020
Mindful CSUSM is thrilled to announce our first summer conference:
RE-IGNITING THE JOY OF TEACHING: INTEGRATING CONTEMPLATIVE TECHNIQUES INTO THE CLASSROOM.
It will take place June 19–21 at CSU San Marcos.
This conference is a 3-day, intensive gathering designed to bring together educators
from across the country. We will share a variety of contemplative techniques such
as mindfulness meditation, mindful reading and writing, deep listening, contemplative
movement, and compassion practices that can evoke from us as educators and from our
students a number of important cognitive, emotional, and motivational resources. We
will also discuss contemplative practices designed to help create more inclusive,
identity-safe student learning communities that have the courage and resilience to
grapple with difficult issues with wisdom and compassion. Join us for three days of
reflection, contemplation, and rejuvenation! Housing is available.
More details to follow.
We hope to see you in San Marcos this summer!
