About Us


Contemplative Studies is an emerging interdisciplinary inquiry into, and critical reflection on, the nature and significance of contemplative theory and practice. It ranges from enduring religious traditions to modern neuroscience, and from classical to contemporary forms of yoga and mindfulness.

TCU’s Contemplative Studies initiative began in 2012. We offer an array of events every semester, including panels, movies, experiential exercises, and visits from major figures in the field.
