This presentation discusses contemplative practices as they can be used to help researchers and educators develop prosocial attitudes and behaviors such as cultural humility, discomfort resilience and fierce compassion. In addition to discussing the literature on prosociality and cultural humility, the presenter shares examples from her international research as it relates to the development of these qualities. The goal of this presentation is to support researchers, educators and students in enhancing their capacity to teach, conduct scholarship and elsewise engage in a manner that consciously unseats privilege, unconscious bias and oppressive paradigms such as racism and heterosexism.
