Recently, Daniel Barbezat (Executive Director), Mirabai Bush (Founder and Associate Director), Beth Wadham (Program Associate) and I (Carrie Bergman, Program Associate) completed a short video to introduce the work of the Center. I’d like to invite you to watch it and share it with your colleagues and friends.
The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society is a 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Northampton, MA, and dedicated to the transformation of post-secondary education. We envision an education that promotes the exploration of meaning, purpose and values and seeks to serve our common human future. An education that enables and enhances personal introspection and contemplation leads to the realization of our inextricable connection to each other, opening the heart and mind to true community, deeper insight, sustainable living, and a more just society.
We envision higher education as an opportunity to cultivate a deep personal and social awareness in order to stimulate inquiry into what is most meaningful to us as interconnected human beings. We seek to recast the traditional foundations for education into a truly integrative, transformative, and communal enterprise that is wholly open and inclusive of all backgrounds and that cultivates each person in the fullest possible way.
Thank you so much for your support!
