Mindful Teaching & Learning:
Contemplative Pedagogy for the Classroom

Presented by:
Miku Lenentine,
Post-doctoral Research Associate and Instructor at the Beloved Living Center in Redmond, Washington

This workshop will provide an introduction to a field of education known as contemplative pedagogy (CP), which brings mindfulness into the classroom and cultivates different ways of knowing. CP provides access to ways of learning and understanding that are complementary to approaches found in traditional liberal arts education. CP can be applied across disciplines from the sciences to the arts.

In this workshop, faculty will learn about:
• The concept of contemplative pedagogy
• Benefits of using it in the classroom
• Reflections on the relations of culture & context to teaching and learning
• Examples of application across disciplines

Come prepared to enjoy yourself, and relax into an atmosphere of mindful teaching and learning.

Beverages will be provided. Feel free to bring your own lunch.

Please register as space is limited.
