Need a break from urban noise? We can help.

We ‘re Urban Contemplatives.  For the past three years, we’ve been creating mindful moments for the active lives of listeners like you. One way we do this weekly is through our Mindful Moment Podcast.

Each podcast episode is hosted by UC Founder Eric Barnhart and has ten minutes of guided contemplation followed by five minutes of conversation.  Our prayers and practices are based on ancient disciplines commonly found in Christian tradition and set in modern, easy-to-do forms and language.  Conversations feature artists, musicians, writers, scientists, philosophers and others, exploring contemplative topics through an ecumenical Christian lens.

We love creating Mindful Moments. We’d like to make more along with other opportunities and resources for helping others to rest, reconnect and renew.

Here’s where you may come in.

Each episode costs roughly $500 to produce.  We are a 501c3 nonprofit corporation, and until recently, we’ve been entirely self-funded and volunteer-supported.  Our long-term goal is to fund our efforts through $5/month subscriptions that grant subscribers access to members-only content and benefits. 

Our marketing plan, when implemented, could allow us to be fully funded for our current budget in 6-12 months entirely by subscriptions. To launch our plan, we need to raise capital from potential donors like yourself that, put together, equals $1,000/mo for the rest of 2020. 

Will you help us?

Take a look around. Feel free to ask us any questions you may have. If who we are and what we’re about resonates with you, help us continue our efforts to become fully funded through subscriptions by 2021.

In gratitude,

Eric Barnhart, Founder
