Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a safe, participatory, and holy space to foster spiritual growth deepening our love for God, ourselves, neighbors, and all of creation. We are a hub for Christian contemplative prayer, spiritual practice, and living. In communion with others we participate in the Christ mystery through contemplative practice, learning, growing, and doing life together. Through this sacramental tapestry, we and our world are transformed.

Our History

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. In late 2016 we began meeting in small groups at J-Tech Construction and holding introductory workshops. In 2017 we moved into 135 North 31st Street and 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 United States and Canada. In 2022 we began a new phase of our journey as moved to out of our physical home and created a new digital home, The Contemplative Cathedral, where we are deepening community, practice, and action. We continue to hold in person events at local prairies and churches while growing non-local community online.
