UF Mindfulness and Wisdom Think Tank

Evidence-based mindfulness research has increased profoundly over the past decade. UF Mindfulness team members are especially interested in understudied topics: 

  • Mindfulness and faculty members and teachers in higher education (not college students)

  • Mindfulness and mind-body practices in nature 

  • Meditation, mind-body practices, and embodiment (in coaching, counseling, and therapy)

  • Mindfulness, wellness, flourishing  and AI 

  • Ethics of mindfulness and "the machine" (human-machine interaction, apps, tools, smart devices that support meditation) 

  • Meditation linguistics (sutras, nondual texts, meditation instructions)

  • Transpersonal psychology

  • Spirituality and wisdom

The University of Florida is situated in Gainesville, Florida, USA which is a vibrant community with groups/centers that offer training/teaching of diverse spiritualities and meditation practices. Florida's beautiful landscape invites  nature walks, hiking, and enjoyment of green spaces.
