Contemplative Voices Award

Shalem’s Contemplative Voices Award was created to honor those individuals who have made significant contributions to contemplative understanding, living and leadership.

Gerald May Seminar

Annual event that commemorates Gerald May, Shalem’s former Senior Fellow, through an interactive seminar featuring leading contemplative thinkers, writers and artists.



Our mission is to nurture contemplative living and leadership.


Grounded in our understanding of God’s desire for peace, wholeness and well-being, we envision a world transformed by contemplative living and leadership in which all people honor one another and creation, recognize their unity and interconnectedness, and courageously seek to live out of this reality.
