11-24-14 Bonnie Glass- Coffin PhD is an anthropologist, author and visionary who believes educating the whole person (head and heart) should be at the core of a liberal arts education. She builds bridges inspired by transformative experiences she had while studying with Peruvian shamans for over 30 years. She has written about this vision and her experiences of deep personal transformation in academic venues. She has developed and piloted course curricula that celebrate this “whole person” approach to learning while providing tools for inner-exploration and development and she has been awarded both the CASE/Carnegie Professor of the Year from the State of Utah (2004), the Eleanor Roosevelt Global Citizenship Award (2010), and the Dean’s Giraffe Award for “sticking your neck out” (2012). She has written two books about her work with Peruvian shamanism, The Gift of Life: Female Spirituality and Healing in Northern Peru and Lessons in Courage: Peruvian Shamanic Wisdom for Everyday Life (with don Oscar Miro-Quesada).
