Tuning the Student Mind: A Teacher-Student Journey in Consciousness-Centered Education

Sociologists have developed a multitude of ways to define different identities. Each of these identities is related to an individual’s self-concept. We use these different identities to navigate the world, as they help us infer our similarities and differences with other people. But, how do we teach students to see and understand our connections and the sameness that underlies all our experience—our common humanity? As a faculty member teaching identity studies, I have long asked myself: Is the way that I am teaching sociology inspiring my students to understand their interconnection to each other and the broader world? This presentation will share both evidence-based research and stories collected from over the ten years of teaching my course, “Consciousness, Creativity and Identity”. Participants will gain new knowledge regarding the impact of consciousness-centered curricula. And, how integrating meditation into the core curriculum of academic classes can impact learning, creativity and connection.
