CMind’s mission is to positively and progressively transform society through diverse contemplative practices.

Contemplative practices are about learning from our own unique, personal experiences. We call them "practices" because over time, with repetition, our learning grows as our experience changes.

Contemplative practices have many forms, including:

Creative practices like singing, playing music, drawing, writing, knitting...

Movement practices like martial arts, yoga, dancing, walking, working out...

Relational practices like storytelling, deep listening, dialogues, meetings, and circles...

JOCI is an online, open access, peer-reviewed journal published by CMind. JOCI advances the understanding, development, and application of contemplative and introspective methods in order to serve a vision of higher education as an opportunity for cultivating personal and social awareness and an exploration of meaning, values, and engaged action.
