Bricks and Mortar

 It’s late 2012, and the long-promised death of print (predicted somewhere on a Mayan calendar, I’m told), has yet to happen. I live in Seattle, birthplace of Amazon and the Kindle (full disclosure: I worked for Amazon twice, once from 1998-2000, again from 2004-2007), and yet I still see people leaning against bus stop posts absorbed in paperbacks. I’m lucky to live in a town that boasts two large independent bookstores—Elliott Bay Book Company and University Bookstore—as well as a variety of smaller independents that cater to various neighborhoods and niche interests.

Goddard at the AASHE Conference: A Leader in Sustainability

 

I had the privilege of representing Goddard at the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) conference this October.  I was invited to the conference in Los Angeles by the Chronicle of Higher Education to speak as one of a four- person panel about sustainability in higher education.  Approximately 150 people--faculty, students, college presidents, sustainability administrators and trustees attended the session. Goddard was invited as a leader and innovator.

"Temporary Home:" A Residency Performance by MFAIA student, Misha Penton

Using one of the abandoned military bunkers on the bluffs of Fort Worden State Park, Misha Penton (MFAIA '13) created a site-specific performance during the fall 2012 residency for the MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts program at our Port Townsend, Washington site.  Watch the beautiful video below.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Meets the Buddha

            At the end of my self-compassion workshop this semester in the Psychology & Counseling Program I overheard a student saying, "I'm so glad to hear I could just meditate for ten minutes. I always thought it had to be a whole long thing."  This blog is for those who thought they could never meditate, like this student, like me, and for those who already have a meditation or yoga-meditation practice.
