Humanities and Healing: Cultivating a Contemplative Pedagogy

The intention for our work is to influence a more compassionate, heart-centered approach to teaching healthcare and healing that might include aspects like art, poetry and story.

To do this we brought faculty on a journey exposing them to the humanities through four workshops. In the first, the Judy Chicago Exhibit entitled Birth Project: Born Again, represented the nexus of art and health care. The next three workshops focused on fostering campus creative spirit utilizing spaces of beauty on campus: in Nurtured by Nature a campus garden, in Reimagining Sacred Spaces the university chapel and in Rivers Flow: Transitions and Change the Mississippi river. In each session we facilitated a process of writing, reflection, dialogue, and producing a communal poem.

In this proposed session we will replicate our pedagogical process by leading the group in an observation of two Judy Chicago art pieces and subsequent reflection, creative expression, and creation of a communal poem.
