Mindfulness and Meditation at University

10 Years of the Munich Model

Why should mindfulness and meditation be taught at universities? What impact could the establishment of such programs have on students and on the education system itself? Andreas de Bruin showcases the remarkable results of the first ten years of the Munich Model »Mindfulness and Meditation in a University Context« – a program started in the year 2010 in which 2000 students have already participated.

Through meditation-journal entries featured in the book, students describe the effects of mindfulness and meditation on their studies and in their daily lives. In addition to an overview of cutting-edge research into mindfulness and meditation, along with in-depth analyses and explanations of key terms, the book also contains numerous practical exercises with instructions.

1. Why did you choose this topic?

The main reason for implementing this program was to offer students the opportunity to get more in touch with themselves and thus more in touch with their own source of inspiration and creativity. I myself have experienced inner peace and an increased ability to focus on whatever I do through my personal meditation practice. It has also helped me to find my path in life and to muster the strength and energy necessary to achieve it. Enabling students to discover their own inner compass was important and meaningful to me.

2. What new perspectives does your book offer?

It shows the potential of mindfulness and meditation in the context of higher education, especially from the students' own points of view, based on their meditation journals. It also contextualizes the teachings of a number of great spiritual teachers. And it advocates for a greater focus on the inner dimension of human beings, while pointing to a needed paradigm shift in the educational system.

3.What makes your topic relevant for current research debates?

Up to now, research on mindfulness and meditation has focused almost exclusively on its effects. What is proving to be increasingly more important is how it can be successfully implemented through various fields of activity. The Munich Model is an example of this. It also encourages more research on topics like the self, the soul and intuition.
