Imagining the Contemplative University

Monday, February 25th from 6:00 – 7:30p.m.

Humanities Center, Serra 200
The emerging interdisciplinary field of Contemplative Studies is dedicated to research and education on contemplative practice and experience. In this lecture, Louis Komjathy, PhD, presents a vision for USD as a “contemplative university,” one in which education is infused with attentiveness, awareness, interiority, silence and presence. Here, faculty and students would explore their deeper values, commitments and callings through contemplative inquiry. In the process, Dr. Komjathy offers suggestions for developing a contemplative approach and opportunities for exploring how contemplative pedagogy might be applied to various disciplines and curricular offerings.
