Welcome

The purpose of this site is to provide an international hub for scholars, researchers, teachers and students who are working in the rapidly growing field of contemplative education. Its purpose is to facilitate contact, information sharing, collaboration on projects, mentoring students and a range of other activities. The site is designed so that you can register and post your information as well as search the site for colleagues and material that interests you. In addition, it provides a source of information and contacts for those interested in exploring the possibilities of this area of pedagogy and research but who are not yet registered. Both registration and searching are free and so we urge you to register and become a part of the growing and exciting contemplative education community.

Véronique Tomaszewski – May 2017

Professors Ioan Davies, Louise Rockman and Raymond Morris encouraged me to continue to teach after I graduated with a PhD in Social and Political Thought and had been their assistant from 1995 to 2000. I have been teaching at Glendon College the bilingual campus of York University as full-time contract faculty since, at the intersection between sociology of culture and social psychology. Teaching up to four courses in two languages kept me away from the research and writing I had envisioned, but I realized the incredible opportunity to treat the classroom as a phenomenological situation and to witness Mind in a social setting. This awareness turned the precarious condition of being an adjunct into a laboratory in human consciousness through participative observation. I had no idea how far and rewarding this journey would be.
