Contemplative Studies at Rice

A very welcome email inquiry leads me to broadcast more widely that I've been invited to teach and collaborate with Rice's contemplative studies program.

Contemplative studies is the new new thing adjacent to religion. Brown has it and Rice has it--not sure where else. The idea is to integrate contemplative practice and study.

Anne Klein and Jeffrey Kripal are among the exponents here.

This is a VERY interesting development, Tim. VERY. Contemplative studies? Who'd'v thunk it. Why, contemplation and philosophy go together like tea and crumpets, no?
