Judy Traeger reflects on what it’s like to draft a Daily Meditation.

Ali Kirkpatrick shares about her process of editing.

Therese Terndrup writes about the surprising process of finding sources.

Contemplative Art

Jenna Keiper sees choosing images as an opportunity to receive the moment just as it is.
