Teachers at the Center
Claire Stanley, Ph.D., is on the faculty of the Antioch University New England and Barre Center for Buddhist Studies. She is also a founder and the Guiding Teacher of Vermont Insight Meditation Center in Brattleboro,Vermont.
Her work as an educator for the last 23 years has focused on teacher development, interpersonal and intercultural communication in professional relationships, and the role of mindful awareness in the quality and effectiveness of our work in the world.
She is passionate about the far-reaching possibilities of transforming the systems of any professional context into learning communities where human beings are awake, compassionate, and responsive to their inner life and to the lives of the people they work with.
Jack Millett, MAT, is a founder and teacher at The Center for Mindful Inquiry and Vermont Insight Meditation Center. He was an Associate Professor in the Master of Arts in Teaching program at the SIT Graduate Institute for 25 years.
Since 1990 Jack has been exploring ways to integrate meditation and teaching practices by exploring ways to bring mindfulness to his work in the classroom. When designing lessons and teaching classes, he is most interested in being in the moment, seeing what is, accepting what is, and responding to serve.
From his extensive teaching, teacher supervision and educational administration experience, he has developed the ability to create safe and engaging environments that allow participants in his courses and workshops to touch an appreciation of themselves and others as they engage and learn the content of the course.
At the moment, his particular interest lies in creating rich, supportive, engaging, reflective learning environments in the online courses that he teaches.
