Building an Electronic Contemplative Community
for Active People
17 Wildflower Way, Santa Fe, NM 87506
The ICL, an electronic contemplative community, provides
workshops, retreats, and seminars for folks living a full life, and connections to other people exploring their contemplative
yearnings. Our perspective is tactical: there is no one system of contemplation that fits everyone,
so the ICL guides people and communities to explore the riches of the contemplative tradition and to develop contemplative
practices that may be applied tactically to the specifics of their personal or community life. The
ICL promotes contemplation in action; no inactive contemplation here! We seek to establish an electronic community of
people interested in pursuing their contemplative lives while living active lives. Please join us!
