A centerpiece of this fall’s 360° course cluster on the cultural history and science of contemplation and mindfulness is a two-week trip to Western Japan that is now underway. Eleven Bryn Mawr and Haverford students and their professors—Haverford Associate Professor of East Asian Studies Hank Glassman, Bryn Mawr Professor of Chemistry Michelle Francl, and Bryn Mawr Professor of Psychology Marc Schulz—arrived in Kyoto on Tuesday, Sept. 27, and have embarked on their schedule of visits to temples and sacred sites.

Francl, an enthusiastic blogger who also writes a regular column for Nature Chemistry, is chronicling the trip on the 360° class blog.
