Please join us for the faculty retreat on Integrating Contemplative Practices into the Teaching and Learning Experience June 4-6, 2014, at the beautiful Pierce Cedar Creek Institute in Hastings, MI.  The Institute offers a “breath of fresh air from the standard meeting place” and is situated on over 600 acres of forests, streams, lakes, and more in southwest  Michigan.

The retreat affords us a spacious opportunity to further develop our contemplative practices and to identify ways to integrate them into our teaching and our students’ learning.
