Vol. 4 No. 1 (2017): Building Just Communities
Contemplative practices are often described as inwardly-focused forms of self-inquiry and reflection that foster intrapersonal development. Contemplative practices can also develop and sustain greater interpersonal connection and allow an increased understanding of the implications of the systems in which we interact. For this issue, JOCI sought papers that investigate these connections and explore how ethical, compassionate, and more socially just communities in higher education can be nurtured through contemplative approaches that recognize and honor difference, with a commitment to the common flourishing of all.
