In this talk from the “Practicing Mindfulness & Compassion” conference on March 8, 2013, Rhonda Magee explores how to apply contemplative practices to our professional lives—and in doing so create more compassionate workplaces.
Magee is Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at the University of San Francisco. In Mindful‘s June 2013 issue, Magee talked about bringing mindfulness into the legal field and noted that “the goal is to help lawyers develop the capacity to put themselves in the shoes of another, to listen more thoroughly, with as little judgement as they can manage.”
