In Educational Anthropology Major of Ritsumeikan University, students are offered the opportunity to engage in contemplative practices. They engage in multilateral research to the relations between education and humanity via issues involving their own themes. The themes of graduation theses would be important issues in students’ whole lives. To prepare for the theses, students learn Wilber’s integral theory and Krishnamurti’s literatures in the 1st grade, meditation in the 2nd and yoga in the 3rd. In the 4th year, students meditate into their issues mainly through pondering with their professors. The most important thing on writing is transforming of the consciousness itself. Some students experience themselves to be mindful to their whole existence, and the old prejudice would be cut loose from the ties and a reinterpretation of the life manifest itself. Through an analysis of students’ graduation theses, this session explores the experiences of contemplative practices in higher education.
