Thomas J. Bushlack in the Media
About the Podcast:
“Contemplate This!” features interviews with leaders and teachers of contemplative practices (mindfulness, meditation, contemplative prayer, etc.) in order to learn about their history, how they became involved in contemplation, what their daily practice looks like, how they teach and share the fruits of contemplation with others – and most importantly – how their practice has transformed them and inspired their work to transform others and the world around them.

“I found myself in leadership roles that I didn’t feel qualified to have. I now feel completely empowered to take on the leadership roles I am in. My whole mindset is shifting in how I see myself and how I want to live my life, with confidence and boldness!”
“After attempting to piece together my own contemplative practice with little success, Tom’s program provided a solid foundation for a lifelong, life-altering centering meditation practice. Since embarking upon this journey, I’m discovering a new level of peace and compassion in my life.”
"Working with Tom has given me deeper insight into my own behavior, and more compassion and understanding of the behavior of others. Working with Tom was like having a warm cup of tea on a cold day. He is brilliant, insightful and the perfect guide for someone who is looking to accept or manage the chaos of life."
