The Mindful Teacher

At the heart of contemplative education is the wakefulness of the teacher. This course explores contemplative concepts, skills, and practices in preparation for the journey of mindful teaching. The basic approach comes from Tibetan meditative traditions, but other Buddhist and contemplative teachers are studied. Observations, perceptual exercises, and emotional awareness skills complement readings and discussions. Mindfulness-awareness development is experienced both personally and as a component of community learning. Students who are not matriculated in the MA program must receive permission of the instructor to register. Course fee.
