Monday, November 5, 2018

Stanford Law School, Health Improvement Program

This one-hour session explores the pathway to justice through compassion and self-care. Prof. Tyler will deeply explore CBD’s 5 states of P.E.A.C.E — Pause, Exhale, Attend, Connect, and Express — that support 5 P.E.A.C.E traits — Prosociality, Equanimity, Altruism, Compassion and Ethics, which are introduced in the Summit’s first session.

He will share the challenges and triumphs in cultivating P.E.A.C.E., during a 20-year career as a public defender and, since 2012, as a clinical law professor. Questions he will address are:
- How has he integrated contemplative practices and self-care into his life to support the capacity for a long career of service?
- How has he taught and mentored students and lawyers in the conscious cultivation of the 5 P.E.A.C.E states to support, deepen and sustain the 5 P.E.A.C.E traits?

The session will include substantial opportunities for engagement among attendees.
- Attendees will be invited to ponder and discuss a series of scenarios that implicate fundamental values of justice in conflict with other values.
- Attendees will be asked to consider how they might respond to the scenarios in the context of the P.E.A.C.E states and P.E.A.C.E traits at the center of the Contemplation by Design program.
