Mindfulness at ASU

The Center for Mindfulness, Compassion and Resilience at Arizona State University unveils the power of mindful living to advance our well-being and engagement through learning and connecting with the larger community.

Under the leadership of Professor and Registered Nurse Teri Pipe, Center Director, this initiative focuses on deepening ASU's culture of healthfulness, personal balance and resiliency among students and employees.

The center will serve as a convening vehicle for students, faculty, staff and community members to learn about mindfulness initiatives at ASU. It will bring together a vast array of interests in order to best honor the needs of the university's diverse population. We will promote and connect mindfulness efforts currently underway as well as inspire and support future endeavors across ASU campuses, within Phoenix and the surrounding communities.
