Strong. Gentle. Centered presence.
Arizona State University’s Center for Mindfulness, Compassion and Resilience (“Center”) is a self-sustaining department under the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation.
Center strives to change the world into a more compassionate and inclusive place by creating a mindful, welcoming culture of caring and belonging. Individuals are each part of an intricate social web. As such, we understand that as we shift one small part of the system (ourselves), we then have the ability to transform the whole system (the world). The well-being of one contributes to the well-being of all.
Center uplifts individuals and teams who aim to cultivate mindfulness in their environments by providing training opportunities, building capacity, and developing and disseminating resources. Together, we co-create spaces where the values of mindfulness, compassion, and resilience weave into our lives, both implicitly and explicitly. By elevating others, we design a system that brings well-being to scale.
