Contemplative Studies Initiative Coordinator, Audrey Perkins, retired on June 15, 2018, and a new coordinator, Kate Gallagher, stepped in mid-March 2019.  We truly look forward to bringing enriching programs your way and to being together again soon!  There are many opportunities for connection, study, practice, and research on the horizon.  Please email Kate with any CSI questions or to sign up to receive email updates about our plans and programs. Thank you for your interest in and support of CSI. As always, may we make space in our lives, minds, and hearts for what truly matters.  And may we remember to reach out to our community resources when needed.
