In keeping with its mission, Contemplative Network’s board of directors consists of contemplatives, with the majority from various Christian denominations, plus a minority from other faith beliefs. Contemplative Network is self-governing and independent of any other organization. However, it has contact with representatives of various contemplative organizations, including The World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM) and Contemplative Outreach Ltd. (COL). This assures accurate and respectful teaching of the various contemplative traditions. Additional collaboration, both interfaith and scientific, comes from common board members with the Institute for Spirituality and Health (ISH) in the Texas Medical Center (TMC). The ISH is the oldest such organization in the US, and the TMC the largest medical center in the world by four times.
All board and organization members are volunteers, receiving no salary or other compensation, with none having lifetime appointments. The following are the current board members, officers, and staff with links to some of their resumés.
