Applied Stillness

Applied Stillness is the blog for the Contemplative Studies Initiative at Oregon State University.  Posts will be a combination of writings by faculty and staff at OSU who are engaged in the contemplative community.

As our first blog post, I wanted to feature an article that appeared in Life @ OSU and captured the humanity of the late Dr. James Blumenthal.  A loved and respected presence at Oregon State, and at Maitripa College in Portland, Oregon, Dr. Blumenthal was a key visionary for a Contemplative Studies Initiative and eventual Center at Oregon State.
