At this past February’s Wisdom 2.0 conference, featured in our July 2011 magazine, we got to speak with Dr. Stuart Lord, president of Naropa University, about the conference’s theme of “merging wisdom and technology” — and how it dovetails with Naropa’s vision of contemplative higher education. Watch here:
Dr. Lord has also written a new Shambhala Sun article about the value of contemplative education. It’s called “Answering the Call to Serve” and you’ll find it, too, in the current, July 2011 Shambhala Sun magazine.
