The Art and Science of Contemplative Teaching and Learning: Exploring Ways of Knowing
Registration is closed for this event
Presented by the Garrison Institute’s Contemplative Teaching and Learning Initiative
Open to all educators
This annual symposium on contemplative teaching and learning will explore a range of approaches that can support the development of attention, insight, emotional self- regulation, empathy, compassion and action. Interactive workshops will allow participants to explore contemplative education through mindfulness, yoga, indigenous ways of knowing, dance, storytelling, poetry, music and drawing. There will be ample time for dialogue and sharing experiences so that together we can re-imagine classrooms as spaces that attend to diverse ways of knowing, multiculturalism and social justice.
Educators, administrators, researchers and others with an interest in contemplative teaching and learning will have the opportunity to:
Dan Siegel, M.D., clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and Co-Director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center, will give the keynote address.
Laura Rendón, author of Sentipensante (Sensing/Thinking) Pedagogy: Educating for Wholeness, Social Justice and Liberation, will lead the opening session.
1.2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available from the State University of New York at New Paltz for an additional $60. If you are interested in receiving the CEU Registration Form, please email the CTL Program Assistant at email@example.com.
