SPARK Retreat for Educators and Non-Profit Leaders

October 6 - October 8

This weekend retreat held by the SPARK Center for Professional and Personal Renewal offers education professionals (faculty, staff, administrators), undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to cultivate a sense of clarity, meaning, and purpose as the basis for engaged action in their work and education. Throughout the weekend we will explore a variety of contemplative practices, including mindfulness meditation, walking and gentle yoga, exercises in compassion, journaling, and dialogue. These practices cultivate capacities essential in college and university environments—focused attention, deepened understanding of course content, greater kindness and compassion, and enhanced contemplative inquiry and insight. Participants will have opportunities to connect with one another and become part of a community committed to contemplative practices in higher education.
