About Us

Who are we?

We are CFACS, the Center for Applied Contemplative Studies (CFACS). We are an on campus organization created to assist members of the UNC community and beyond in cultivating mindfulness in their personal, professional, and scholarly lives.


To empower inclusive, integrative, and applied contemplative (for example, mindfulness-based) studies within UNC’s communities and beyond.


By supporting contemplative research, scholarship, creative work, and community engagement, and through contemplative practices such as mindfulness meditation and others rooted in tradition, innovation, and research, the Center for Applied Contemplative Studies will promote understanding and wellness of the whole person, whole society, and whole planet.
