Journal/Book: Rev Higher Educ. 2000; 24: Journals Publishing Division, 2715 North Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21218-4319, USA. Johns Hopkins Univ Press. 1+.
Abstract: Arguing that higher education research has become disconnected and fragmented, this paper presents a model, Academics of the Heart, that seeks to connect the intellect with the spirit. The model, based on the ancient wisdom of the Mayas and the Aztecs, views research as a relationship-centered process, honors diverse ways of knowing, and employs contemplative practice to connect the inner and outer nature of knowledge.
