The prevailing conception and practice of education perpetuates a civilization saturatedwith a deep sense of ontological disconnect and axiological crisis in all dimensions ofhuman life. We examine the disconnect from body, senses, and world in the practice ofeducation. We explore the possibilities in the burgeoning contemplative educationmovement for reconnection offered by holistic, experiential approaches to learning, inparticular, contemplative practices that manifest the arts of somatic, sensuous, relational,and contextual awareness.
