The Association for Contemplative Mind in Higher Education (ACMHE) is a professional academic membership association and an initiative of CMind. The ACMHE has convened conferences since 2009. The ACMHE conferences are interdisciplinary forums for sharing scholarship, practices, and research on contemplative methods in higher education, with an emphasis on fostering compassionate social change.

ACMHE conferences typically feature many concurrent sessions led by scholars, researchers, students, and practitioners, demonstrating and investigating how contemplative practices are being used throughout higher education. Through keynote presentations, interactive sessions, and workshops, participants explore how diverse contemplative pedagogies and practices can support transformations on multiple levels – self, classroom, organization, community – and invite creative, unconventional approaches to how we imagine and seek to address the many challenges of the 21st century.
