Each session will be devoted to discussing a section of the book and, more importantly, the sharing of ideas and strategies for how contemplative practices highlighted in the book can be used in instruction.

Contemplative practices are used in just about every discipline—from physics to economics to history—and are found in every type of institution. This book presents background information and ideas for the practical application of contemplative practices across the academic curriculum from the physical sciences to the humanities and arts.

“Contemplative Practices in Higher Education represents an instant classic in a growing movement that promises to bring greater depth, resonance, and engagement to college students’ learning experience. Dan Barbezat and Mirabai Bush document a stunning array of contemplative applications, revealing a robust and innovative field of pedagogy.” -Daniel Goleman, author, Emotional Intelligence.
