Thomas J. Bushlack, Ph.D.

Teacher. Author. Contemplative Field Guide.

My goal is to share the fruits of contemplation through creative media - from traditional publishing to online learning, plus blogging, podcasting, and guided meditations.  Life is the most meaningful and joyful when it is a shared adventure in pursuit of our common good.

Join me in exploring contemplative practices and compassionate social action.

In my day job, I'm associate professor of Theology and Christian Ethics at Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, MO, where I'm also the co-director of the Ashley-O'Rourke Center for Health Care Mission.  I'm also a Trustee of the Trust for the Meditation Process, an oblate of St. Benedict at St. John's Abbey (Collegeville, MN), and a commissioned presenter of Centering Prayer through Contemplative Outreach, Ltd.
