This ACMHE Contemplative Education webinar with Dr. Emily McRobbie explores graduate student experiences in an online course intended to introduce the role of mindfulness and contemplative pedagogy in adult learning settings.
This workshop, presented by three creativity-affirming scholars from the South Pacific, will take participants through a series of engaging, empowering writing exercises that may be adapted to help learners of any age restore their self-confidence and re-story their lives.
Offering a contemplative practice for well-being and self-reflection, Sequoya will center Black sci-fi author Octavia Butler and the 12 lessons mentioned throughout the Parable of the Sower. This webinar will include guided visualizations with oracle card images, intentions, and journaling.
Using personal story, the speakers will discuss their respective journeys navigating South Asian identity development, the influence of colonialism on this process, and how they have navigated contemplative pedagogy work within a broader context of cultural appropriation, racism, and islamophobia.
