Monday, August 1 – Wednesday, August 3, 2022
with Yuria Celidwen, Valin S. Jordan, Jonathan H. X. Lee, & Devora Neumark
The 18th Summer Session offers a rich offering of plenary presentations, practical sessions, discussion, and small-group work. Participants will have ample opportunities for contemplation, self-reflection, and connection. Some of the questions and topics we will explore include:
- What are Earth-based practices?
- Why are they important now?
- How do we bring them into education?
- What paths might lead us from human-centric to Earth-centric practices?
- How can we cultivate wellness in learning environments and hold space for our emotions?
The annual Summer Session offers a unique combination of experiential learning, community building, and time for practice. Past attendees have referred to it as their “yearly tune up”: a chance for personal reflection, self-care, and pedagogical development. We welcome newcomers to contemplative pedagogy! The Summer Session offers a foundation for understanding, experiencing, and developing contemplative approaches and ways to integrate them into the classroom.
The Summer Session is facilitated by a multidisciplinary team of educators with extensive experience across many aspects of higher education. They will provide guidance as you explore how to effectively and responsibly integrate contemplative practices into your educational environments.
