    This short essay suggests the importance of reflective/contemplative practices (discourse,

    journaling, meditation, mindfulness, inquiry, walking, etc.) for developing the

    inner life with its capacities for knowing, values, compass, multiple intelligences,

    consciousness, wisdom and imagination. These are seen as essential building blocks

    for shifts in consciousness toward compassion, empathy, unity and aware concern

    for larger social realities as well as a complement for the more familiar areas of human

    competence needed for large-scale, whole system initiatives. Deliberate encouragement

    for development with implementation of reflective/contemplative practices and

    the interior life from early childhood to death may offer an essential component for

    building a future where all can thrive.
