Humanity has a universal call to contemplation — to discover something more within, often through inner practices from Eastern traditions. In many cases, Western traditions have lost track of their historical, contemplative component. That is why zendos, ashrams, and yoga centers are oftentimes full. Yet, slowly, the contemplative aspect of Western traditions is coming to light, and being practiced more.
