We are three full-time law teachers. Two of us are also meditation teachers, and we are all involved in the small but growing movement to bring various mindfulness practices to legal education. Our ultimate goal is to help students bring their whole selves to the practice of law.

Legal workplaces have become even more stressful, high-paced, and competitive than ever before. These conditions create added stress and anxiety, and detrimentally affect the mental health and well-being of law students and lawyers.

Like many professions, law is also a highly cerebral field. Legal training focusses almost entirely on developing thinking skills rather than focusing on feeling, moving, or being. This one-sided approach to education and life can leave law students and lawyers feeling disconnected from essential parts of themselves, which can in turn can make it difficult for lawyers to connect with clients and act as stewards in society.
