ABSTRACT
The article discusses how teachers could safely enable transformation of students and development of new competencies in a formal learning environment. It cites having a knowledge of depth psychology to enable and achieve transformation and intentionally destabilizing what is taken for granted through the practice of mindfulness to develop compassion and dismantle injustice. It also notes how mindful moments in the classroom gave a teacher the sense of connectedness to students with no barriers of superiority.
