Human Security and Contemplative Practice: A Series of Conversations

February 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

See the event video below

The Henry J. Leir Institute is pleased to announce a conversation series dedicated to exploring the intersection of Human Security and Contemplation. As complexity multiplies across all disciplines, the question of providing human security rests on fundamental aspects of what being human means. In this four-part conversation series, participants are invited to listen and engage in questions about how one determines one’s inner course of action before proposing and leading action into the world. Contemplation is in essence learning to quiet the mind, to make the temple of our being into a place where decisions are made mindfully and perhaps more humbly. Learning to engage honestly with inner inquiry and contemplation allows one to explore the ambiguities and uncertainties of making decisions – and to become a more effective listener and leader. This program is open to all who share a sincere interest in self-reflection. 

The program is hosted by Profs Mazurana, Jacobsen and Wilson, and the conversations will be led by Leir colleagues, Tsering Gellek (F01) and Anton George Barré.

The first conversation is on February 25th at 11 am ET.
