We’re Urban Contemplatives. We help people lessen the urban noise in their lives so they can… you guessed it… contemplate. Meaning. Purpose. God. Cheese. Etc.
Right now, we do this primarily through our monthly Gatherings. Folks like yourself get together for fifty minutes to listen to live instrumental music, sing a song, and take a few moments in silence and guided contemplative prayer.
Our prayers are based on ancient disciplines commonly found in Christian tradition and set in modern, easy-to-do forms and language. A couple big fans of contemplation, meditation and mindfulness: Jesus and David. Other fans include our Conversation Guests, people who have experience with integrating contemplation into an urban lifestyle that they share through chatting and Q&A.
We love holding Gatherings. We’d like to do more and create other opportunities to help folks in their contemplation. While we have several ideas on how we can do this, what we don’t have is treasure chests brimming with gold bullion. We’re a 501c3 nonprofit corporation, and until recently, we’ve been entirely self-funded and volunteer-supported. Each Gathering costs around $500, and there are loads of other resources we have in mind that, with successful funding, we could provide.
Here’s where you may come in.
Take a look around. Feel free to ask us a question or forty-two. If who we are and what we’re about resonates with you, consider sending some hard-earned bullion to help us continue our efforts. We appreciate it – and you.
