Abstract: Mirabai Bush will introduce a range of practices that have been integrated into courses across the curriculum, including mindfulness, contemplative reading and writing, compassion and loving kindness, yoga and tai chi. Contemplative practices cultivate capacities central to education, including focused attention, deepened understanding of course material, greater kindness and compassion, and enhanced inquiry and insight. This webinar will also address the relationship between personal experience with contemplative, introspective practice and bringing a contemplative approach to one’s professional role.
