Contemplative Practices and Education: Making Peace in Ourselves and in the World - A National Conference at Teachers College - February 13 - 15


by Clifford Hill - November 01, 2004



We must first make peace in ourselves if we are to make peace in the world.—The Dalai Lama

 

The conference will feature national leaders such as Jon Kabat-Zinn who are seeking to transform education through the use of practices that create greater mindfulness in students. Those who attend the conference will be invited to submit manuscripts for a special issue of the Teachers College Record on contemplative practices and education. Details about manuscript submission will be distributed at the conference. We are especially interested in receiving manuscripts that focus on the use of innovative practices in educational settings.

 

We hope that you will be able to join us for what promises to be a remarkable gathering.
