    This technology-free space is available for quiet contemplation and individual restoration for those attending the annual meeting. The Contemplative Space features daily guided group meditations as well as mindful-movement activities throughout the conference. For those new to mindfulness, our Introduction to Mindfulness sessions offer a general explanation of mindfulness and its potential applications in legal education.

    Meditation sessions will vary between guided breath meditations, choiceless awareness meditations, and body scans. The Mindful Movement classes will consist of seated yoga, walking meditation, and qi gong (a practice similar to tai chi). No prior experience is necessary to attend the classes offered.

    The Contemplative Space is sponsored by The Mindfulness Affinity Group of the AALS Section on Balance in Legal Education. Classes held in the Contemplative Space are coordinated and instructed by representatives of the Mindfulness in Law Society, Student Division.
