Show Notes

In this shorter episode Christopher and Riley discuss the most frequent question we receive from those new to contemplative practice - Where do I begin?  We offer some basic ideas, which can be implemented incrementally or all at once to put yourself on the path to becoming a contemplative.  The core of contemplation is always stillness.  To sit in silence, and preferably, solitude will do more to reveal the benefits of contemplation than anything else you will learn, and yet, there is much more to this lifestyle.  We hope you enjoy the episode and will reach out to us with your feedback, ideas, and reports.  We’ll follow up with some reports of our own in the next episode.
