A Growing Community


College Contemplative: A multi-author blog exploring contemplative and mindful pedagogies at the university level

Discovering this blog was a delight. I’m encouraged by the growing community of faculty, staff, and students whose lives, work, and learning are shaped by mindfulness and other contemplative practices. I am also happy to be able to savor the writing and work of a friend and former colleague, Bart Everson.
