In this article, the author makes a case for the metaphor of “Sea Mind” as seen through the lens of pedagogy and describes the importance of his perspective for teaching and teacher education. As a teacher educator who has engaged both educational and contemplative work, his essay introduces the concept of a Sea Mind’s relationship to contemplative teaching and explores the challenge of maintaining healthy selves in a raging river of highstakes testing and test preparation and the rough waters of public school reform.
