  • EXCITING NEWS! The OOOW has a new website!
    Over the next few months, many of the materials you find here will be migrated to an exciting new interactive space where you can discover more about contemplative wisdom, contemplative practice and our special contemplative community. In fact, many of your favorites (such as our chants) have already flown the coop. Some materials will not make the transition so if there are teaching materials you desire, make sure to download them from this site in the near future. So, come see our new look as well as a new way to engage with the OOOW community. You can use the link below OR our direct address is https://www.contemplativewisdom.net/ Come visit and stay a while.
