The Association for Contemplative Mind in Higher Education (ACMHE) is a multidisciplinary academic association with an international membership of educators, administrators, staff, students, researchers and other professionals committed to the transformation of higher education through the recovery and development of the contemplative dimensions of teaching, learning and knowing.
The ancient practice of contemplation is being explored by many institutions of higher education as a new means of enhancing liberal education. Research demonstrates that “contemplative pedagogy”-the integration of meditative practices into higher education-facilitates the achievement of traditional educational goals such as improved cognitive and academic performance.
The Meditation Room is available to any member of the Florida State community who seek a quiet, simple place to reflect or meditate. Since it is meant for quite reflection or prayer, conversations or teachings are best enjoyed outside of the Meditation Room in other spaces of the building.
