Contemplative Voices Award

Join us for a special fundraising event on Zoom.

Sunday, September 19, 2021, 4-6 PM ET

“To be alive in this beautiful, self-organizing universe – to participate in the dance of life with senses to perceive it, lungs that breathe it, organs that draw nourishment from it – is a wonder beyond words.” – Joanna Macy

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.

Shalem’s Contemplative Voices Award was created to honor those individuals who have made significant contributions to contemplative understanding, living and leadership and whose witness helps others live from the divine wellspring of compassion, strength, and authentic vision.

Shalem is pleased to award our 2021 Contemplative Voices Award to Dr. Joanna Macy.
