A Pathway to Joy in Our Work: Spirituality in the Academy
Groen, Janet
Journal of College and Character, v16 n2 p120-123 2015
The author of this article reflects on the question of how academics can increase the joyful and holistic nature of their work, in other words, how to shift from disenchantment to enchantment in the academy. The author argues that this shift is cultivated daily, not only in the "action" and "doing" portion of their work but in the creation of spaces of "silence" and "listening" for inner wisdom, a reminder of the heart and soul of the work that faculty members do.
