Welcome to the UCSD Center for Mindfulness

UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness is a multi-faceted program of professional training, education, research, and outreach intended to further the practice and integration of mindfulness and compassion into all aspects of society.  

We offer a broad range of mindfulness-based programs and initiatives. Whether your interest in mindfulness is personal or professional, on behalf of a young family member or your workplace, or if you are just curious about what it is, you are invited to explore our online home. The center is a program of the UC San Diego Center for Integrative Medicine and UC San Diego School of Medicine's Department of Family Medicine and Public Health. 


We offer a wide variety of programs and initiatives at the Center for Mindfulness, designed to make mindfulness and compassion understandable, practical, and accessible to all.
