Suzanne Klatt

Hello all! I am the Director of the Miami University Mindfulness and Contemplative Inquiry Center. We were created by faculty, staff, students, community members, and in consultation with national and international experts. We are committed to embodied teaching, learning, and inquiry and engaged in transformative contemplative practices focused on heart, mind, body, and spirit. 

This Center has a unique physical space created with input from students enrolled in our classes and folks stopping by for weekly meditation on Wednesdays.

I began this journey in 1996 and have been practicing, inquiring about, exploring Mindfulness & Contemplative Inquiry since that time as a therapist, community educator, activist, facilitator, creator and co-creator of best practices in these emerging fields. The core of this work is also anti-oppressive. We are called to inquire in order to act to create a better world. 

I worked with similar programs around the world as part of a "think tank" designed to create Mindfulness and Contemplative Inquiry, practices, pedagogy, programs, and activism in a myriad of ways. We have classes, provide co-curricular events, engage in scholarly inquiry through contemplative and critical methods, and are open to meeting people wherever they are in their own educational journey. 

Please stop by the Center. We are open Tuesdays through Fridays 10 to 4 pm during the fall 2019 semester.
