Researcher interests: Contemplative education. Contemplative practices have been developed across cultures toward fostering well-being, heightened awareness, and finding meaning. In recent years we are witnessing an increasing interest in mindfulness practice, yoga, tai chi and other contemplative practices in education. My research focuses on rendering the pedagogical aspects of these practices based on their sources (i.e. Buddhism, classical yoga), psychological research, first-person and second-person methods of inquiry, and educational theory. Basically I explain why observing one's breath, performing a yogic posture or a tai chi form is education in the deepest sense of the word.
