Abstract: There is a growing interest in counselor education in the use of contemplative practices as a therapeutic and pedagogical approach. However, there is very little examining how contemplative pedagogical interventions can support counselor educators and their students learning the skills, attitudes, and beliefs needed to engage in multicultural competent practice. Major elements of contemplative pedagogy and practical applications for integrating contemplative practices into course work to support multiculturally competent practice will be explored.
