- Integrating Contemplative Practice Into the Undergraduate Pursuit of Finding and Following an Intuitive Call.Jan M. Wall - unknownThe purpose of this study was to investigate the integration of contemplative practice into higher education.

Intuition was defined as an immediate, unmediated or tacit way of knowing; calls or callings as inner directives towards meaningful life pursuits. Intuition and calls were seen as overlapping and interchangeable terms. The literature review for this study explored relevant trends in higher education. One trend (...)No categories
