Contemplation – Meditation
The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society (CMind) transforms higher education by supporting and encouraging the use of contemplative/introspective practices and perspectives to create active learning and research environments that look deeply into experience and meaning for all in service of a more just and compassionate society.
The spiritual landscape has never been more diverse, more eclectic, more individualized or more internally focused. Spirit matters, and in our open-source world, matters of the spirit are complex and endlessly fascinating. The Spirit Matters podcast aims to help listeners make sense of it all. We interview experts with a wide range of perspectives: East and West; religious and secular; metaphysical and scientific; philosophical and experiential. Some of our guests are well known; others should be well known. They are teachers and scholars and spiritual leaders, all with wisdom to enrich our understanding and advice to enhance our spiritual growth. After each interview, Dennis and Phil have a brief follow-up discussion to add perspective to what was discussed with our guest.

Contemplative photography: Use your camera as a meditation tool? The photographic image not only records what it is pointed at – it speaks to the photographer’s relationship with the world and their quality of presence. Are you looking, seeing, trying, rehearsing? Are you present to what is before you?
