Abstract: (Show)
In this podcast, the Executive Director of the Contemplative Sciences Center at the University of Virginia David Germano promotes a broad and generous definition of contemplation to honor different higher educational contexts (academic, residential, personal). He and host Paul Swanson discuss the implications of increased societal interest in contemplative practices and the relationship between resilience and contemplation. Germano describes how to create embodied, engaged learning experiences in large student classes of up to 200 students and provides examples of initiatives in education, medicine, engineering, business, arts, and sciences.
