During my summer sabbatical, I visited a childhood friend who is a Sister of St. Joseph in the Catholic Diocese of Rochester, NY. She co-founded and operates Cobblestone Springs, an interdenominational retreat center in the Finger Lakes area, where I gave an afternoon workshop on “All-American Humanism.” That evening I spent an hour in silence with her and the other residents and visitors. At breakfast the next morning, she asked whether Humanism had a contemplative practice.

While my colleagues and I have addressed humanist spirituality (and I led workshop participants in a guided meditation), I had to concede that it hasn’t yet taken the form on a practice or discipline, perhaps because we are so focused on ethical action.
