Course Description

This course will enable students in their first year of college to incorporate a range of contemplative practices into academic life. It will expose students to a selection of activities as noted by the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society (CCMIS).  It will introduce students to select disciplines that stimulate embodied contemplation and promote awareness of the natural, social, and academic environment into which undergraduates are embedded.  It will provide guided reflection on nine specific educational maxims that seek to promote integrated learning during the initial year of post-secondary education.
