Sandra
Assistant Dean and Professor of Biology

I am grateful to have the opportunity to serve first year students and teach an Engagement as a College Fellow. My interests and experiences at the intersection of human biology and contemplative practices will combine in an offering of an ethical Engagement class. Students who seek to be embodied, present, and grow in conscious living are invited to bring their curiosity to an inquiry of bodily awareness and mindfulness. An understanding of fundamental human physiology and contemplative practices of attention, concentration, kindness, and compassion will provide a basis for discussions of living a good life based in interconnectedness, generosity and wisdom. I look forward to learning with students who have an open mind and a willingness to grow as we seek to release some of our conditioned worries in an exploration of how to cultivate ethical conscious lives.
