Join the Xavier Contemplative Inquiry Team

Recently Xavier's campus has seen a burgeoning interest in meditation, yoga, t'ai chi, and other forms of contemplative practice. These practices have been shown to have many benefits such as increasing focus, managing stress, and improving health. If you are interested in learning more, we invite you to join the Xavier Contemplative Inquiry Team. We will meet over the course of the 2016-17 academic year and provide support for each member to establish and maintain a personal practice, as well as explore issues related to contemplative pedagogy and research. Supported by a grant from the Mellon Foundation, the team is open to faculty, staff and students. Apply HERE today or contact Bart Everson at 520-5164 or
