What is Contemplative Studies and how does one practice “contemplative pedagogy?” Our presentation will address these questions, and demonstrate that such teaching fits well into, and even enhances, traditional liberal arts education. Contemplative pedagogy is a response to student interest in multiple ways of learning and increased self-knowledge, as well as widespread concerns about alleviating stress and promoting wellness in a culture of digital domination. We will describe what we call first, second, and third person approaches to learning, and offer some exercises which can be used in a wide variety of classrooms.
