Opportunities for Calm and Connection

OPENS SEPTEMBER 13

Welcome to the WCU Center for Contemplative Studies. While we are back on campus (yay!), we're offering live, online, and recorded resources here to help you find calm in the present moment, to see the moment more clearly, and—most important—to stay connected with others.

On this page is our weekly schedule of live and online practices and events. On other pages, we are posting an ever-growing assortment of recorded practices for you to use whenever it suits you, as well as events and recordings from other sources that may expand your practice.

Further, to keep our practice grounded in facts and reason, here is a link to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health of the National Institutes of Health to keep you up-to-date and scientifically correct on the value of contemplative practices for health and wellness in these times of stress and pandemic, and on the science and philosophy of our contemplative stance in the world.

Please let us know if there is more we can offer or other ways we can help bring more clarity and calm to your academic and personal lives.
