Contemplative Practice Program

The Nathan Cummings Foundation

The search for innovative solutions - to poverty, global warming, the economy, health care, international peace and security - gets more urgent with the growing sense that we lack the capacity to deal with the highly complex problems that confront us. If Einstein was right, that "no problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it," then the path to innovative solutions will be the path through to different levels of consciousness. That may mean something as simple as seeing things from a fresh perspective, or as profound as having a deep spiritual experience. NCF's Contemplative Practice Program makes a small number of grants each year to explore contemplative pathways to innovation, creativity and more effective collaboration.
