Mandala @ MIT: The Wheel of Life
Venue: Building 32-123, 32 Vassar Street, Cambridge
Speakers: Fr. Thomas Keating and Ven. Tenzin Priyadarshi
Contemplation had been recognized across time and culture as essential to the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom, yet it remains almost entirely absent from today's curriculum and pedagogy. Contemplative knowing is a missing link, one that affects the student's performance, character, and depth of understanding.
The panelists will talk about their insights from contemplative practice, and the practical and natural role of contemplation in life-long learning, including formal education.
