UMindfulness The University of Miami’s Mindfulness Research and Practice Initiative (UMindfulness)  is an interdisciplinary collaboration across the University of Miami that brings together cutting-edge brain research and mindfulness/ contemplative practice training. Contemplative training is offered in nonsectarian, accessible, and innovative ways to optimize performance, enhance wellness, and promote resilience. Active research projects involve training military cohorts, University students, and medical, legal, and other professional groups to determine the basic brain mechanisms underlying contemplative practice. In addition, UMindfulness offers a lecture series and workshops for University of Miami students, staff, faculty, and alumni, as well as the broader South Florida community, to learn about and engage in mindfulness training.   Amishi Jha, director of contemplative neuroscience and associate professor of psychology, and Scott L. Rogers, director of programs and training and of the Mindfulness in Law Program at the University of Miami School of Law, formed UMindfulness in 2010. UMindfulness is a joint collaboration of the College of Arts and Sciences and School of Law, along with the Miller School of Medicine, Mailman Center for Child Development, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, School of Nursing and Health Studies, Herbert Wellness Center, Counseling Center, and Frost School of Music.
