Can contemplative pedagogies help us extend care to all beings, develop competencies in systems thinking, and build equitable systems for human-Earth flourishing? In this session, participants are asked to share their experiences and insights on how to use contemplative pedagogies to address global sustainability challenges. We begin by introducing the A Mindset for the Anthropocene (AMA) project, which conducts research, connects change agents, and develops curricula for integrating personal, social, and ecological transformations towards sustainability. We will then briefly present a contemplative curriculum that the AMA project is co-developing with the Courage of Care Coalition. Afterwards, we invite participants to collectively share their expertise and knowledge on how to design and implement contemplative pedagogies for human-Earth flourishing. Dialogue will be guided around the question: “How can we integrate psycho-spiritual and societal transformations toward sustainability?”
