An Introduction to Contemplative Studies
Course Code: COST 0100 CRN:
Introduction to the new field of Contemplative Studies focusing on identifying methods human beings have found, across cultures and across time, to concentrate, broaden and deepen conscious awareness. We will study what these methods and experiences entail, how to critically appraise them, how to experience them ourselves, and how they influence the development of empathy, health, and well-being. Preference given to Contemplative Studies Concentrators.
When: 7 weeks. June 26, 2017 - August 11, 2017
Registration for Brown undergraduates opens March 31st.
