  • Title: Breaking the duality - Qualscape
    Descriptive info: Breaking the duality.. 08/26/2013.. 1 Comment.. This morning I woke up thinking how easy it is to get trapped in the duality of good and bad, right and wrong, success and failure.. After a while it seems tiring, like a trapping, and a thoughtful reflection on how buying into such duality informs me, my everyday lives was extremely insightful.. Perhaps there is no need for such duality.. Perhaps the only need that there is, is for being in integrity with self.. Then, consequences seem inconsequential and there is peace without attachment to the outcome.. When I think about how this insight my serve me in teaching, I think about creating a learning environment that is not about penalizing students just because they did not get a concept right the first time.. It is creating a learning environment that is supportive of a rich journey where there might be challenges and various types of help to address those challenges.. In my research, I think of the ways in which a deeper journey within allows me to integrate my epistemology, theoretical framework, methodology, and how I choose to represent what I represent.. I want to move myself out of my own comfort zone and develop a deeper understanding of the human condition and present such understanding in my writing, publications, conference presentations.. Such in-depth analysis is only possible if I do homework before fieldwork.. There are many contemplative practices I enjoy.. Movement-based practices work the best for me.. These include,  ...   May you find joy in what you do today.. May you make the connections needed for your fulfillment today.. May you smile more today than you did yesterday.. May you be able to handle any and all challenges if they enter your consciousness today.. Comments.. Jo Foy.. 03/01/2014 12:56pm.. Hi Dr.. KB,.. You've opened up a place in me for which I have been yearning.. I am checking out the Association for Contemplative Mind in Higher Education.. I think this is what Brene Brown is also reaching for, but has not yet been able to find in the academy.. She had to make the decision to go part-time several years ago.. As a faculty wannabe, I am very concerned about the work/life balance of academy.. I have been told that it just does not exist.. I have been there done that, working for TAMU for eight years as a scientist.. Giving my will and my life over to the academy is not my dream; contributing, mentoring, coaching, writing, researching, and facilitating my students--now that is more like it--with a mindful and compassionate heart and mind (and body).. Reply.. Leave a Reply.. I am a faculty at Kansas State University, teaching mostly qualitative research classes.. For years I have been working on a deep journey within and implementing my insights through creating opportunities for students to think deeply in order identify their passion, motivation, and integrate their work, education, and lifelong goals together..
