Contemplation: Compassionate Presence
“Compassion” means “to suffer with”—to be present to the suffering of another person, another living being, or community.


Contemplation: Gratitude
Whatever inspires us toward gratitude, whether science, personal development, or art, we have to do our own research–we have to uncover gratitude for ourselves.


Contemplation: Pause-Relax-Reflect
A good way to develop calm and become more present in your life is by adopting a reflective practice. Reflections invite us to be intentional–to be mindful and present.
