The Monash Centre for Consciousness and Contemplative Studies (M3CS) promotes our common humanity by integrating interdisciplinary consciousness research, community engagement and contemplative education.
Funded through a generous philanthropic grant from the Three Springs Foundation, M3CS is a university-based research centre and educational hub. M3CS conducts research across humanities, psychology, medicine and neuroscience, delivers innovative, practice-based education, promotes interfaith and secular dialogue, and engages extensively with contemplative communities and partner organisations.
Our mission is to make contemplative practices central to our conscious connection with each other and our environment, helping us better solve the many challenges the world confronts. The Centre aims to wake us up to ourselves, each other and the planet.
