Mindful UNCW


In addition to formal opportunities to learn about mindfulness listed below, Mindful UNCW will offer one campus-wide event each year led by a guest expert in the field and open to students, faculty, and staff. A regular meditation group will be held for faculty/staff, support will be provided to the UNCW student meditation club, and we will also facilitate mindfulness practice in the Mindfulness, Yoga, and Wellness Makerspace in Pelican Hall (after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted).

Student Practice Groups

There are different opportunities for students to practice meditation at UNCW, through student groups and the Counseling Center:
