In April 2016, the Center for Contemplative Mind (CMind) and the Fetzer Institute convened a gathering of higher education faculty and staff who had played a role in growing and sustaining campus groups that emphasized contemplative practices. Out of these discussions and a series of seed grants to support community-building initiatives, CMind developed a .pdf toolkit to support the building of contemplative communities in higher education contexts.

The toolkit is organized into six sections, reflecting common phases and challenges. During this community conversation session, we will have opportunities to share questions, experiences, and resources corresponding to these topics, which are: Intention (Laying the Groundwork); Invitation (Creating a Welcoming Community); Sustainability (Building a Sustainable Community); Meetings and Events; Conflict Transformation; Connecting the Dots (Being Part of a Larger Movement).

Copies of the toolkit will be available.
