Talk on Zen and Contemplative Education (Sunday May 12, 11:20am)

Wanted to let everyone know that I’ll be giving a presentation this Sunday morning at the First Congregational Church in Williamstown on “Zen and Contemplative Education.” The first half of my talk will provide a quick introduction to the basics of Zen practice (including a brief guided meditation, to give folks who’ve never meditated before a taste of the experience), and the second half of my presentation will explore some of the ways we might use contemplative practices (like meditation) in schools in order to transform and deepen both teaching and learning. This presentation is part of the First Congregational Church’s Second Hour Series. All are welcome. Facebook event page for this talk is here.
