Contemplative Studies

NEW SPRING 2018

“We are far more than we think we are.”

MINDFULNESS THROUGH CONTEMPL ATIVE PRACTICES PROGRAM Our program, Mindfulness through Contemplative Practices, emphasizes an integrated approach to mindfulness, drawing from a variety of traditions, to understand and apply a more contemplative approach to life. Contemplative practice enables a state of calm centeredness, improving focus, reducing stress, quieting the “monkey mind,” heightening creativity, fostering a nonjudgmental approach to thoughts and emotions, and aiding in developing deeper concentration. Through theory and practice of meditation, yoga, and Qigong, students will enhance the practice of being present through awareness of breath and movement. Practical insights into applying the teachings of The Bhagavad Gita and The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali to our contemporary lives will be explored. The courses are designed to increase attentiveness, help create positive emotions, and gain clarity and self-awareness, all unleashing creativity and cultivating wisdom that comes from developing mindfulness. Mindfulness for Health and Healing Class participants will be introduced to the concept of “mindfulness” and mindful methods for avoiding, reducing, or managing perceived stress. The overarching agenda of these practices is to soothe and quiet the body and nervous system while cultivating presentmoment awareness. During our four-week program, students will use these techniques, designed to aid in the avoidance of experiencing chronic stress, in their daily lives and in the workplace. Stress Management Strategies The stress management strategies presented will include both mentally energized and low-impact physical wellness techniques. Students will review the causes of stress, study techniques to recognize how one experiences stress, and methods for avoiding, reducing, or managing perceived stress. Through practice, one can become more confident, self-assured, and at ease.

PHILOSOPHICAL TEACHINGS OF INDIA

Yoga Fusion Yoga Fusion integrates meditation, pranayama, and the most popular styles of yoga: Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga, Kundalini, Iyengar, Yin Yoga, and restorative yoga postures. We will investigate the philosophies of yoga traditions, inner traditions, and historical context along with contemporary perspective, and incorporate a physical practice of each yoga practice introduced.

Yoga Therapy The Bhagavad Gita is the eternal message of the spiritual wisdom from ancient India. The Bhagavad Gita (Song of God) is a beautiful mystical poem within the epic Indian scripture Mahabharata, in which God is in conversation with his friend Arjuna (man). The story in the poem opens with a battlefield scene, offering nuggets of wisdom that can help influence and inspire our modern-day lives in positive ways. The Gita swings back smoothly from the head to the heart, and the worldly to the spiritual. Students immerse themselves in the teachings, intuitively and practically. Yoga Sutras of Patanjali The focus of this class is on key sutras in the first and second chapters of The Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali. The real work of The Yoga Sutras is in the understanding and learning of the authentic self. In the first two weeks, the focus will be on yoga philosophy and the goals and effects of yoga, which are detailed in the first chapter. The second chapter of The Sutras is concerned with the practice of yoga and how to achieve the goal of a restrained and stable mind. Several texts will be used and students will be asked to write a short weekly summary of the sutras covered in the previous week and how they apply them to their daily life. The Sutras exist for one reason: to help the meditator in their spiritual journey of reconnection (yoga).

PHYSICAL PRACTICES Qigong: Healing Powers through Qigong Qigong is a gentle Chinese physical wellness practice, doable by anyone, that dissolves stress and relaxes muscles, increases flexibility, clears the mind, lifts the spirit, and noticeably boosts the energy (Qi). You will leave each session with stimulating thoughts and experiences, physically healthier, and with a very different sense of yourself and of your powers. Along with the practice of Qigong, each session will include a combination of paradigm-expanding mental thoughts, facts, and research, from fields such as quantum physics, subtle-energy research, consciousness research, healing, and spirituality.

Yoga and Art, Clearing the Way Tap into higher inspiration and refine your artistic skills with yogic tools and teachings that empower creative expression. During a yoga practice, you are focusing attention on a subtler realm than usual. This is mental training to focus on aspects of awareness outside of our perceptual range. By examining our thoughts, movements, and breath, we become more perceptive in other areas of life, including making art. Musicians may become more skilled at the subtle movement of their fingers on their instruments and visual artists may tune in to a wider range of colors and textures. By mindfully observing and inspecting a full range of our experience on and off the mat, we pave the way to creating more authentic and nuanced art.

ART AND CULT URE: COURSES AND WORKSHOPS Cultivate mindfulness through directly engaging in a range of meditative and creative practices. Composing Gathas Gatha is an ancient Sanskrit term for “song” or “verse.” To silently recite gathas while enaged in mundane activities is a way to remain mindful in the face of routines that can be accomplished on “automatic pilot.” The practice of employing gathas as a tool to promote focus and concentration in daily life has been made popular by global spiritual leader and poet Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. In this workshop, you will read well-known gathas by Hanh and others, learn to compose your own verses, and incorporate gathas into your contemplative practice.

Hatha Yoga A Hatha-style yoga practice emphasizes physical health and mental well-being through yoga postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) to guide you to a clearer, peaceful mind and healthy, balanced body.

Tibetan Buddhist Thangka Painting A thangka is a Tibetan Buddhist painting on cotton or silk fabric, usually depicting a Buddhist deity, scene, or mandala. Historically employed as teaching tools and as devotional images illustrating the life of the Buddha, venerated teachers, and enlightened beings, this painting tradition is in danger of being lost. Under the guidance of Amsterdam-based artist Carmen Mensink, a sought-after teacher and thangka painter, you will gain a thorough understanding of this contemplative practice through painting and drawing instruction, slide shows, lectures, and meditations. The course includes a field trip to the Rubin Museum of Art to view ancient Tibetan thangkas. You will learn: •• historical, cultural, and religious contexts of Tibetan thangka paintings; •• how to interpret the symbolism found in Tibetan art; and •• the meaning of Shakyamuni Buddha’s mantra and how to employ it in your practice. Everyone, including beginners with no drawing or painting experience, will share in this unique opportunity to dive into a revered, time-honored practice. Buddhist practitioners especially will find that drawing the Buddha significantly improves your visualizations and meditations. Japanese Tea Ceremony Chado, the Way of Tea, is a five-century-old Japanese cultural tradition and living art form. A deeply contemplative practice that can be studied for a lifetime, the Japanese tea ceremony embodies the principles of Wa Kei Sei Jaku (harmony, respect, purity, and tranquility). You will receive an introduction to the history, philosophy, and etiquette of the traditional Japanese ceremony and experience a demonstration.

Geographic Information Systems and Design Certificate (GIS)

••

As location-based data becomes ubiquitous in our society, employers are recognizing the importance of mapping (Geographic Information Systems), statistics, and visualization. Spatial data requires special considerations for use and mapping is transforming how we communicate and interpret data. Pratt Institute’s Spatial Analysis and Visualization Initiative (SAVI) has created a modernized GIS program that teaches students both traditional, robust analytical software along with the latest interactive tools and coding skills. This, along with a heavy emphasis on design, enables students to make compelling, data-driven maps and visualizations to solve real-world problems. Course projects give students the opportunity to bring their diverse, multidisciplinary backgrounds to bear on research and problem-solving. Students in the program can also take advantage of Pratt Institute’s rich history of community engagement by working with SAVI’s community clients on practicum projects. Upon completion of the GIS and Design Certificate program, students emerge with a curated online portfolio that can be shown to current and potential employers.

Focus on Design. In typical GIS programs, cartography is often an afterthought. However, in our modern, visual world it’s critical that students learn to create professional, sleek visual map and data analysis products. We teach students to transform their raw data into compelling stories.

Certificate Fee $100, nonrefundable Certificate Requirements The certificate program requires the successful completion of 22.5 CEUs (225 hours). CORE COURSES XSAVI-700 Foundations: Spatial Thinking, Data, and Design XSAVI-701 Introduction to GIS: ArcGIS or XSAVI-702 Introduction to GIS: QGIS XSAVI-805 Advanced GIS (45 hours) ELECTIVES XSAVI-750 Mining the Web: How to Scrape, Analyze, and Map Open Data

How We’re Different •• Data Assessment and Methodology. The open data movement has “liberated” endless data sets, but users often apply the data without assessing its accuracy, representativeness, and true utility. We teach students to approach all data with a critical eye. •• Thoughtful Methodologies. With so much data available and a myriad of tools to create maps and graphics, it’s easy to get caught up in creating things that look “cool.” However, we want our students to be able to solve real problems using in-depth analytics and statistical methods. •• Current, Marketable Skills. Our nimble curriculum is continually updated to ensure we’re teaching in-demand skills. We not only focus on traditional GIS analytical methods but also the technical underpinning of online mapping and interactive graphics using current programming languages. •• Multidisciplinary. Our students come from a variety of topical backgrounds, which allow them a rich experience through exposure to many perspectives and applications of GIS and data analysis. This allows them to be more creative in their own projects and to work better in groups.

The Grammar of Photography PMPH-472 | COURSE FEE: $950 13 SESSIONS | 3.9 CEUs Photographs tell stories. As writers use cadence, sentence structure, or the sounds of words to help advance the story, photographers use light, shape, and color. In order for photographers to communicate effectively, they must go beyond employing general visual principles. Analyze the challenges and potential solutions involved in photographical composition. Investigate how photographers say what they say based primarily on ideas suggested in the seminal writing on photography, John Szarkowski’s The Photographer’s Eye. Students are required to purchase the book. Through regular shooting assignments that deal with the principles of photographic vision and composition, students will learn how to formulate, strengthen, and translate an idea into the visual form of a photograph.
