About the Author

Laura I. Rendón is Professor Emerita at the University of Texas-San Antonio. She is also an educational consultant and featured speaker at over 100 higher education institutions and conferences throughout the nation. Her presentations focus on topics such as student success, Latinx STEM students, and sensing/thinking deep learning experiences, as well as self-care and healing. Laura is a nationally-recognized student advocate, activist scholar and contemplative educator. She grew up in a low-income, single-parent household along the U.S. Mexico Border in Laredo, Texas where she learned to speak English in the first grade. Rendón is a passionate advocate for low-income, first-generation students who she feels have hopes and dreams but often do not know how to realize them especially without resources. She has held faculty and administrative appointments at a wide range of universities including the University of South Carolina, North Carolina State University, Arizona State University, California State University-Long Beach, and Iowa State University and the University of Texas-San Antonio.


"Laura Rendon’s Sentipensante 2e is a powerful call to action for educators everywhere. Drawing on such complex notions as nondualism, interconnectedness, self-reflection and agency, she provides concrete tools for integrating body and mind and provides hope for realizing interdependence at a time of widening division. Rendon puts 'wholeness, justice and equity' at the center of education. Especially excellent is the addition of a chapter devoted to the bridging of Rendon's sentipensante with Gloria Anzaldua’s praxis of conocimiento, a new addition to the field of contemplatives studies.."Erin McCarthy, Professor Emerita, Research Fellow, Mind and Life Institute"Chicana feminist scholar Gloria Anzaldua gave us the gift of theories to put our combined pain into action and to challenge an unjust society—especially in the realm of education: ‘Necesitamos teoriìas that will rewrite history using race, class, gender and ethnicity as categories of analysis, theories that cross borders, that blur boundaries’ In an era of extreme racism, nativism, xenophobia, sexism, and homophobia, Laura Rendoìn reiterates Anzalduìa’s call for theories to align with the experiences of marginalized individuals who navigate and resist intersectional systems of oppression. Rendoìn masterfully pens an interdisciplinary framework that provides a road map for fostering institutional opportunities and teaching the whole person toward liberatory social justice. Sentipensante (Sensing/Thinking) Pedagogy is a tour de force that helps define the heart and soul of tomorrow’s America—work that matters, que vale la pena!"Gilberto Q. Conchas, The Wayne K. & Anita Woolfolk Hoy Endowed Chair of Education, The Pennsylvania State University"Humanity, guidance, and courage is what we receive when we read Sentipensante Pedagogy. This beautiful and inspiring book extends a hand and invites us to walk together on a path of self-awareness, to embrace a new form of pedagogy that is contemplative and holistic. Changing beliefs and breaking away from tradition needs courage, and Laura Rendón has come to guide us on this journey of hope towards a caring and compassionate society."Rosa Devés, President, Universidad de Chile"I celebrate this new edition of Sentipensante, the groundbreaking classic that locates education in our embodied experience, cultural heritages, healing, and innate wisdom. More than ever, Laura Rendón has envisioned the way forward for a decolonized contemplative learning that restores genuine faith in what makes us most human—our intelligent hearts. She encourages us to risk joining our own hearts and minds as well as those of our students in culturally sensitive embodied learning. This is done through deeply listening and honoring inner wholeness. She is confident that while this may be challenging, the rewards are generous for both teacher and students and for our beleaguered institutions. This book is a spark of inspiration and promise in a dark and difficult time."Judith Simmer-Brown, Naropa University, author of Meditation and the Classroom: Contemplative Pedagogy for Religious Studies (SUNY 2010)"We live in a world of fragmented identities anchored in fragmented communities. The major challenge of our time is guiding students to go beyond binaries and see lives as situated, embodied, and interconnected. Sentipensante, Laura Rendón’s illuminating guide, empowers us to achieve this goal. With compassion, Laura Rendón helps us realize our own disembodied pedagogical practices, which perpetuate disembodied learning. Laura’s timely prophetic book makes us rethink and reconnect to our authentic pedagogical vision to transform the lives of our students and us. A must-read for all teachers."Ramaswami Mahalingam, Barger Leadership Institute Professor, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
