As I have attended my spiritual journey I have come to value and desire a more contemplative life. 21st Century living brings us face to face with challenges and options everywhere we turn. To choose to slow down and contemplate life is to intentionally filter our decisions through the things that we value most. How can we know what we really value if we have not taken time to be still, to listen and to be honest with ourselves. This invitation to a more contemplative way is a doorway to a less frentic way of life. It is an exploration of what it means to live, love and care deeply in the midst of a fast paced culture.
