This Best of Summit Talk has expired.
Rhonda Magee discusses mindfulness and transformative education and how to bridge contemplative teaching for learning social justice at @Work 2019. She shares how great social justice is possible when people have the tools of transformative and contemplate education, as methods to look within, challenge assumptions, examine the way people participate and shape the world and in having the reflexive space and creating community, to create change. When looking at challenges, contemplate education provides the modality to facilitate the transformation of self, community, and broader world. She explains how mindfulness can be a tool to support the growing transformation process by blending traditional meditation practices, with contemplative exercises and modern day social justice approaches.
