As part of its ongoing initiative towards integrating mindfulness into the university’s culture, NUI Galway will host a day of Mindfulness classes with Tibetan Buddhist Monk, Gelong Thubten in NUI Galway’s Aula Maxima Lower on Wednesday, 9 March, throughout the day from 8.15am to 5pm.
The Mindfulness theme will focus on ‘Deepening our Mindfulness’ through the technique of ‘breathing’, followed by a reflection practice on ‘Cause and Effect – The Importance of Ethical Living’. Classes are free and open to all university staff and students, the general public, researchers, student counsellors and advisors, healthcare professionals, mindfulness practitioners, and anyone with an interest in mindfulness.
Tibetan Buddhist Monk, Gelong Thubten, one of the very popular expert speakers at last October’s NUI Galway Mindful Way Conference, will deliver the Mindfulness classes, as part of the University’s ‘Mindful Way Initiative’.
Gelong Thubten has already delivered monthly Mindfulness classes to NUI Galway staff and students in January and February of 2016 and will continue to do. Due to the enthusiastic response to classes, they have now been opened up to the public. Gelong Thubten said: “The purpose of the monthly classes is to provide a thorough training in mindfulness. The March sessions will introduce people to deepening our mindfulness through breathing.”
Class schedule for Wednesday 9 March: 8.15am – 9:00am, 10.45am – 11.30am, 12pm – 12.45pm, 1.15pm – 2pm, 5pm – 5.45pm. To register attendance and for further information about NUI Galway’s Mindful Way initiative and additional classes visit www.nuigalway.ie/mindfulway
