Abstract: 

Faced with increasing social and environmental disintegration worldwide, and

moreover, a seeming inability to respond adequately to the exigency, I

problematize the intellectualist bias and resulting disembodiment in our

educational practice. I argue that this bias contributes to the problem at two

levels: lack of intrinsic valuing of the world; and inability to translate knowledge

into action. I then propose the practice of mindfulness as a tool with which we

can recover our ability to value the world intrinsically and to embody

knowledge.
