We ‘re Urban Contemplatives. We create mindful moments for the active lives of listeners like you. One way we do this is through our weekly Mindful Moment Podcast.
We begin each episode with ten minutes of guided contemplation using rest, readings, music and meditation. Each episode ends with a five-minute conversation between fellow contemplatives on their own recent mindful moments. Hosted by UC Founder Eric Barnhart, conversations feature artists, musicians, writers, scientists, philosophers and others, exploring contemplative practices through an ecumenical Christian lens.
New episodes premiere weekly on Sundays at 5pm ET.
It’s a noisy world; step back for a moment to rest and be mindful.
