We are a hub for contemplative prayer, practice, and living. Our mission is to provide a sacred and safe space to foster spiritual growth. In communion with others at Contemplate we participate in the Christ mystery through contemplative practice, learning, growing, and doing life together. Through community, practice, and service we transform ourselves and our world.
We began as a dream in 2016 to open a center in Lincoln Nebraska dedicated to teaching, promoting, and facilitating contemplative prayer and practice through the Christian contemplative tradition. Stage 1 was meeting in small groups at J-Tech Construction and holding introductory workshops. Stage 2 was moving into our own home at 135 North 31st Street. In 2017 we began a full slate of services and activities. In 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic paused our in person services and we began meeting online. What emerge was a vibrant contemplative community that transcended location as we had visitors from across the country and Canada. In 2022 we began stage 3 with our move to our new digital home, The Contemplative Cathedral, where we are deepening community, practice, and action.
