The Teacher As Contemplative Observer.
Brown, Richard C.
Educational Leadership, v56 n4 p70-73 Dec-Jan 1998-1999
In a unique teacher-training program at Naropa Institute, future teachers learn to bring the fundamentals of Buddhist practice---observation, meditation, contemplation, and compassion--into the classroom. Contemplative teaching begins by rediscovering one's senses and by knowing and experiencing oneself directly. Spiritual education is not about creating nirvana, but realizing the sacredness of everyday learning. (MLH)
