Dr. Michelle Chatman teaches sociology and anthropology courses at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), the only four-year, public university in the nation’s capital. As an urban, land-grant institution, UDC is deeply engaged in critical issues around urban life and inequality including income neighborhood diversity and gentrification.
In this webinar, Dr. Chatman shares some of the contemplative practices she uses in her classes to deepen student learning, enhance well-being, and inspire a commitment to social justice. These practices include Well-being and Diversity Days, The Mindfulness Challenge, and The Coltrane Meditation.
