The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society is a global community of contemplative practitioners whose goal is the ongoing development of racial, social, economic, and environmental justice and the advancement of human flourishing.
There are many ways towards the realization of our inextricable connection to each other — so that we may act to ensure our mutual well-being and collective flourishing! Here are some of our favourite resources for getting started with practice.
