Contemplative practices are in my opinion, one of the most useful practices you can do in order to get a deeper understanding of any idea or school of thought type of rhetoric that you are learning. In my own version of contemporary practicing, I end up trying to connect the dots and attempt to visualize any model in my mind that can incorporate the new information that is being covered in my mind so it stay better in my head. The result of this version of contemporary practice allows me to integrate different models and create inter-disciplinary thoughts about current events which allows me to create solutions to problems that have never been heard of that may work. This is since there are a lot of different schools of thought that have not been merged when they can be relatable beyond using mathematical models in statistics to create regressions or establish causations if there is a possibility of a control group in an experiment.
In my opinion, the most memorable type of contemplative practice done in class was the one where we taste chocolate and try to appreciate the process that it took from being the cocoa bean to becoming the little chocolate bit. It made me incorporate how business functions (mostly supply-chain management methods) and agriculture components that allows me to see the “beauty” of how the world is completely interconnected due to trade and globalism and how a cocoa plant can be processed to be like “sweet heaven”.
