It’s time to pause …

Our research, practice, and study integrate contemplative practice into our work to explore fundamental inquiries.

— How is society using contemplative practices today, and where do we imagine this work will lead us?

— How do contemplative approaches cultivate dignity, cooperation, and integrity in our organizations?

— How can we use contemplative practices to deal with issues of disruptive change and fragmentation?

— How do we use contemplative practice to deepen listening that creates community and connection by appreciating differences?

— How do these practices cultivate learning to help us move through feelings of loneliness and isolation in our organizations?

— How do we define rigor in contemplative modes of inquiry? How do contemplative practices help in re-examining Western epistemologies — beyond third-person inquiry? What constitutes good data?

— How can we cultivate compassion in the presence of discomfort that transforms fear and anger into courage and effective leadership?


Refining who we are as observers involves distinguishing habits, discerning patterns, and embracing a life of practice. 

  • We slow the self to identify and distinguish automatic habits.
  • With tested practices, we become more intentional in everyday life.
  • We distinguish incomplete items from the past to create space for an emerging future.
  • We create short stillness practices throughout the day.

Clients are left experiencing greater freedom and choices in each situation.

Mindfulness begins with a commitment to expand our awareness and observation to:

  • Become aware of our body’s sensations and present to our body as a source of information.
  • Bring daily practices to activities to create space and gain insight into our choices and actions.
  • Create a daily sitting practice to expand presence; become aware of sensations, triggers, mental compulsions and impulsive drives.

Clients are left present to their intentions, and to their impact on others in each situation.

Through mindful practices, we move beyond our sense of self to connect with common humanity.

  • We work with client experiences and tested practices to cultivate deep listening to connect with others.
  • Through deep listening, clients connect via commitment rather than their personality or impulses.
  • Through mindful practices and deep listening, we presence our blind spots and the nature of resistance from within or from others.

Clients are left present to their commitment and connection to others as a commitment.
