This chapter narrates a design story behind creating a graduate program that thematizes contemplative inquiry and practice as a pedagogic modality. It also offers a critical examination by the founding faculty of the program on what is understood as contemplative education. Finally, it details some of the key findings of student experience pertaining to the program. As a whole, this chapter is offered as an illuminating, and hopefully instructive, tale of one Canadian contemplative education graduate program in the context of a Master’s program.
