Seeking essays for inclusion in the upcoming book, Contemplative Practitioners in Higher Education: Showing Up in our Fullness.
This text seeks to reflect the evolution of this field as it confronts the historical and contemporary forms of racism, cultural appropriation, spiritual bypassing, and other forms of oppression and marginalization that have shaped both contemplative studies and higher education more broadly.
We invite proposals for personal essays from contemplative practitioners in higher education who are working to manifest a more liberatory, compassion-centered, and antiracist academy. We ask that you pair your essay with a description of a practice that is meaningful to you so that readers may further explore practices offered by contributors.
Accepted proposals (due April 1, 2022) will showcase the deep and varied ways contemplative approaches enhance the lives of folks working in higher education as well as their students, colleagues, collaborators, programs, and institutions.
