EDUC 205 - CONTEMPLATIVE PRACTICES IN EDUCATION
This course integrates asana and other forms of physical mindfulness as a pedagogical tool. (Meaning students should come prepared to move.) It is organized around three components: (1) an overview of diverse traditions of contemplative practices and an exploration of commonalities within these practices with a focus on Yoga philosophy; (2) an exploration of physical mindfulness and the mind, body, spirit connection in the creation of our personal contemplative practices; and (3) an investigation of the educational, social, and personal benefits of these practices. The first component introduces material from the classical traditions of Asia--indu, Buddhist, Taoist--and of the Middle East--Jewish, Christian, Muslim and syntheses of different traditions (e.g., the work of Thich Nanh Hanh that bridges Asian and Western traditions); In working with a broad range of traditions, we consider two kinds of material: (1) classical texts that undergird contemplative practices; and (2) modern commentaries on these practices that explore benefits to the body, mind, and society. These physiological, psychological, and sociological perspectives are important in preparing us to explore the educational benefits of traditional contemplative practices. The second component presents traditions of physical mindfulness and yoga pedagogy, and the third component presents educational benefits of contemplative practices not only in formal settings such as the classroom but also in other settings such as psychotherapy and conflict resolution. In our readings we explore these benefits from the perspective of both the individual and society.
