I’m just getting around to highlighting this because I’m just getting around to watching it.
This video accompanied the press release about the $12-million gift from the Tudor Joneses to the University of Virginia to establish a contemplative studies center.
Some of what the professor (who will be part of the program) says was included in the press release. What jumps out at me is the discussion by the professor of the effort to see “how can comtemplative practices become a core part of the university?”
For those thinking there are other, similar programs out there — and it sure seems like there are — I wonder if this is the angle that makes this effort a bit different.
