Abstract

This poster presentation will explore how the presenter, an experienced academic and 30 year veteran of meditation practice, attempted to incorporate student experiences of contemplative practice into two physics courses. Students in an introductory physics course required for health sciences and a general education course on relativity engaged in brief periods of contemplative practice every class period. Results on student perception of the helpfulness of these practices will also be presented.
