Contemplative Pedagogy Leadership Seminar

This seminar, which builds on the SHU Contemplative Community initiative, develops faculty members to serve as leaders and experts in contemplative pedagogy in their schools and colleges. For additional information, contact Dr. Patrick Manning.

Contemplative Teaching Reading Group

Starting spring 2019, Seton Hall faculty members are invited to join a reading group dedicated to the topic of mindfulness and contemplation in teaching and academic life. In keeping with this focus, the group will do a sustained reading of a single text and meet monthly throughout the semester. The intention of this reading group is to provide faculty members with an opportunity to cultivate more mindful, contemplative habits of scholarship and teaching through slow reading, group discussion, and personal reflection. This group is open to all faculty, whether you are a long-time practitioner of contemplative pedagogy or simply seeking for ways to slow down amidst the pressures of academic life. Anyone interested should contact Patrick Manning.

Weekly Guided Meditation

Are you interested in learning how to meditate, or are you someone who meditates regularly and would like to be part of a like-minded group on campus? The Center for Faculty Development is initiating two meditation groups for members of the Seton Hall community. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced practitioner, please join us. You may attend whatever day and time best fits your schedule, and whenever you are able to do so.
