Center for Contemplative Practices
The Center for Contemplative Practices was initially established in order to provide access to practical knowledge about Buddhist traditions. In addition, the Center aims to stimulate the integration of these practices into daily life, at home and at work. We believe that implementing these practices helps us to become more friendly human beings, helps us to become happier.
THIS WEBSITE WILL CLOSE AT THE END OF AUGUST 2017. THE MAIN REASON IS THAT THERE IS TO LITTLE TIME TO KEEP THE WEBSITE UP-TO-DATE. WE ARE VERY SORRY.
What are contemplative practices?
The word “contemplative” refers to the discovery and development of mindfulness and awareness. The development of mindfulness is at the heart of every wisdom tradition. With mindfulness and awareness, each moment is acknowledged, without judgment. Attention is directed on the here and now. Body and mind thus become more balanced.
The term “practices” indicates that we strive towards practical use of knowledge. The practices are described in simple language, using as little jargon as possible.
