IAS faculty members Alice Pedersen, Amy Lambert, and Kristin Gustafson attended the Association for Contemplative Mind in Higher Education national conference in Amherst, MA, where they facilitated a workshop entitled "Risk, Roles, Reflection in Contemplative Learning: Exploring via Liberating Structures." In the workshop, they reflected on the different ways their disciplines position them in relation with their objects of study, and considered how contemplative practice can intervene and enrich that relationship, before asking participants to do the same. Their research and the workshop grew out of their work together as an IAS Research Interest Group on Contemplative Practice and Pedagogy.
