Dan Huston



<p><p>Dan is a professor in the English Department at NHTI, Concord’s Community College. He has been incorporating mindfulness, mindfulness meditation, and emotional intelligence into his communication curriculum since 1997 and was awarded NHTI’s 2008 Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence. </p><br />
<p>Dan’s work is informed by training he received at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn. He enjoys the interplay of bringing mindfulness into his everyday life, teaching, and writing—each application informing the others with inspiring, sustaining fluidity.</p><br />
<p>His essay “How Mindfulness Can Help Us Become Better Communicators” was published in a 2006 Rowman & Littlefield anthology entitled Teaching with Joy: Educational Practices for the Twenty-First Century. More recently, he contributed a chapter called “Waking Up To Ourselves: The Use of Mindfulness Meditation and Emotional Intelligence in the Teaching of Communication” to a Jossey-Bass Sourcebook titled New Directions in Community Colleges: Contemplative Teaching and Learning. He also co-authored a peer-reviewed paper, “Mechanisms of Mindfulness in Communication Training, on the results of a controlled study on his Communicating Mindfully curriculum, which appeared in a November 2011 special edition of the Journal of Applied Communication Research. His textbook, Communicating Mindfully: Mindfulness-Based Communication and Emotional Intelligence, details the innovative teaching methodologies he has developed, and it has received acclaim from educators worldwide. </p><br />
<p>In addition to fulfilling his teaching responsibilities as a member of the English Department, Dan works tirelessly to increase mindful communication throughout NHTI’s campus community: providing training to faculty and administrators, leading workshops at the Business Training Center, and working to infuse mindfulness throughout a variety of curricula.</p></p>
