ACMHE is the academic association dedicated to contemplative teaching and learning.

The Association for Contemplative Mind in Higher Education (ACMHE), a program of CMind, focuses on increasing contemplative insight and action in the realm of education. This includes undergraduate and graduate education, education for the professions, and informal and K-12 education as they relate to higher education.

We believe that education is, in fact, an embodied experience. We strive to augment our capacity to experience emotional learning, spiritual learning, and somatic learning as well as cognitive and intellectual learning as we engage with one another and with the natural environment.
