Kai Dailey. Happy woman wearing a hat on vacation.

Kai's research interest focuses on spirituality and mysticism in secular adult learning contexts. Her research evaluates theory, methods and outcomes related to contemplative pedagogies from a learning science perspective to assist educators in the informed selection, ethical implementation, and relevant assessment of contemplative practices within secular contexts.

Kai's contemplative teaching experience includes Montana State Women's Prison and homeless shelter/transitional housing in Spokane, WA. She is a registered yoga instructor (500 hours) since 2008 and a daily meditator for 19 years. She completed seven years of study with an American Daoist master. In 2009, she started The Sacred Crane to support independent practitioners of the Daoist Arts through hermitage, spiritual care, and the funding of travel and educational opportunities.
