Daniel Barbezat
Executive Director and Professor of Economics, Amherst College Daniel P. Barbezat is Professor of Economics at Amherst College. He has been a visiting professor at Northwestern University and Yale University and has taught in the summer program at Harvard University. In 2004, he won the J. T. Hughes Prize for Excellence in Teaching Economic History from the Economic History Association. Over the past decade, he has become interested in how self-awareness and introspection can be used in post-secondary education, economic decision-making and creating and sustaining well-being. With the support of a Contemplative Practice Fellowship in 2008, he has developed courses that integrate contemplative exercises designed to enable students to gain deeper understanding and insight. His approach to these economic classes has been featured in the Boston Globe, the U.S. News & World Report, as well as on the NPR program "Here & Now." Dr. Barbezat has worked with the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society-the national hub for contemplative teaching and learning, committed to the positive transformation of the higher education system by supporting the use of contemplative/introspective practices to create engaged learning environments-as a Board Member, Treasurer and Associate Director of the Academic Program since 2009. In 2012, he became the Executive Director of the Center. He has lectured and led workshops on contemplative learning and pedagogy throughout the United States and Canada and is actively working to expand and deepen the Center's programs, making its work more accessible and transformative for all.

Daniel Barbezat
On Wednesday, January 30, 2013, Daniel Barbezat (Professor of Economics, Amherst College) presented "Wanting: Teaching Economics with Contemplative Methods." In this Webinar, Professor Barbezat engages in this inquiry with examples from his Amherst College course "Consumption and the Pursuit of Happiness. First-person based exercises on this subject are especially poignant for students, as they can directly discover the impact of their own wanting, how it affects their own economic decisions and the markets around them. After the broadcast, Dan addressed additional questions. Here are his responses: The fundamental economic problem | Living on Unstable Ground - [...] Daniel.

Barbezat and Bush have brought us a path-breaking book that speaks from and to mindful educators intent on helping students focus their attention and resist distractions, find more of themselves in their academic work, and bring more of themselves into the task of crafting lives of meaning, purpose, and compassion."- Diana Chapman Walsh, president emerita, Wellesley College "Barbezat and Bush set forth a blueprint for a quiet revolution in education-placing student experience at the center of our learning objectives, supporting students in reconnecting with themselves while enabling them to feel their connections with an ever more diverse world. Dan Barbezat and Mirabai Bush document a stunning array of contemplative applications, revealing a robust and innovative field of pedagogy."
