Welcome to the 2019 Contemplation by Design Summit. In this session, we will
begin to experience renewal, peace of mind and well-being by pausing to quiet
the striving mind, engage the senses, relax and replenish. We will explore the
fundamental role of contemplative practices in creating a life of sustained
excellence, service, joy, compassion, wisdom and health — a life lived fully.
Learn practical evidence-based contemplative skills for enjoying the power of
the pause. Activities will cultivate the 5 states of P.E.A.C.E — Pause, Exhale,
Attend, Connect, and Express — that support 5 P.E.A.C.E traits — Prosociality,
Equanimity, Altruism, Compassion, and Ethics. In addition to the P.E.A.C.E.
framework that is the fundamental architecture of Contemplation by Design, the
2019 Summit session will follow an arc focused on 4 Ps: Presence, Practice,
Perspective, and Public Service.
