Curious about what contemplative practices are....

Welcome to the Contemplative Justice Network

We are a community seeking transformation of ourselves and our world through an intersection of contemplative practices and social justice work.

We believe this intersection creates the possibility of long-term and sustainable transformation of ourselves and our world. We are living our way into this call and you are invited to participate by attending one of our programs or events, reading our blog (or writing a piece for it), applying for one of our grants, or contacting us to discuss how we might partner for the betterment of ourselves and our world.
The Contemplative Justice Network is an entity of The United Church of Canada and welcomes people of all faith and cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, and political affiliation (see more here). We look forward to hearing from you!
