Seth Schoen

Claremont School of Theology

Dr. Seth Schoen’s research and teaching interests are in contemplative and spiritual practices, especially the cultivation of compassion. He is currently exploring how the Compassion Practice and critical race and racial formation theories mutually inform each other to create a spiritual path of renewal and transformation. As part of this effort, he has co-created Racial Resilience, anti-racism and anti-bias training program. Racial Resilience seeks, in part, to facilitate conversations about race by grounding them in compassionate, open, non-judgmental, and non-reactive personal and inter-personal spaces. Currently he is also an adjunct professor of Practical Theology at the University of San Diego.
