Winter Break Reading Group: Contemplative Practices in Higher Education
Join us for a discussion of the book "Contemplative Practices in Higher Education: Powerful Methods to Transform Teaching and Learning" by Daniel P. Barbezat and Mirabai Bush (authors will not be present). This book provides a gentle introduction to how contemplative practices are being used in various university classrooms across disciplines and programs and will be particularly interesting to new-comers to contemplative pedagogy.
