Reclaiming Compassion: Getting to the Heart and Soul of Teacher Education
Whang, Patricia A.; Nash, Claudia Peralta
Journal of Peace Education, v2 n1 p79-92 Mar 2005
As professors committed to preparing educators poised to teach effectively across differences and in ways that actively resist perpetuating injustices, we have found Buddhist teachings to be nothing short of provocative in terms of expanding how we think and do our work. We offer the following in hopes of intriguing others to join us as we continue exploring the power and potential in practices enlightened by Buddhist teachings. These teachings have much to offer those committed to peace education. This is especially true if one agrees that peace in the world depends on a populace committed to achieving inner peace through practices that promote personal transformation. (Contains 1 note.)
