15th Annual Retreat on the Teaching Life
Exploring the Impact of Contemplative Practices on Self and Students
A Retreat for Grand Valley State University and Ferris State University Faculty

June 5-7, 2013

This retreat was a culminating experience for a group of faculty involved in a semester-long Faculty Learning Community around contemplative pedagogy. Held at Pierce Cedar Creek in Hastings, MI, the retreat afforded a group of thirteen faculty a spacious opportunity to further develop contemplative practices and to consider their impact on ourselves and the students we teach. We had opportunities to learn with and from a small group of colleagues from a range of disciplines at Grand Valley State and Ferris State universities. We were fortunate to be joined by a guest facilitator, Dr. Suzanne Klatt from Miami University, Ohio.
