Book Cover: Meditation in the Classroom

Meditation and the Classroom (State University of New York Press, 2011)

Edited by Judith Simmer-Brown and Fran Grace, this book is the first of its kind to present a thorough-going contemplative pedagogy across many different types of institutions, faculty orientations, and classroom settings.   It highlights the use of mindfulness, meditation, self-inquiry, nature observation, yoga, and other methods that illumine the higher self or silent witness within a student’s awareness.  Self-knowledge, enhanced attention, ethical cultivation, psychological stabilization, life balance, academic success, and compassion for self and others are a few of the positive outcomes.   Paperback: $29.95
