AS 254 - Still Spaces–East Meets West: Contemplative Practice in the Classroom

Type of Course: Seminar
This course aims to explore and gain experience of contemplative practices as they have evolved in both European and Asian cultures. In addition to reading and writing about key texts that engage the “still space,” outside the classroom students will participate in a yoga course for seven weeks. The concepts of “ki” (centeredness) and “tao” (the way) will be probed through the tools of the metaphor and the narrative. For undergraduate English majors this course satisfies the Period (C-1b) requirement.
