Why contemplative education?

Contemplative education transcends the idea that knowledge arises in the thinking mind only. Instead, it invites students to embrace the immediacy of their interior lives as a way to fully integrate what they learn & what they already know intuitively.

Woven into the fabric of contemplative education are experiential ways of knowing rooted in mindful awareness & compassion practices. Through this pedagogical approach to teaching & learning, we reconnect with our innate basic goodness & come into the fullness of who we truly are as human beings, so that we can engage in the world genuinely & with embodied presence for the benefit of all.
