Kansas: The Meditation State


smith museum

Kansas House Majority Leader Arlen Siegfreid (SIG-freed) of Olathe has proposed that a room in the Statehouse be set aside for meditation and spiritual contemplation. Siegfreid notes that the courts have ruled meditation to be a secular practice... and has said he would help raise private funds to construct and furnish the area. 
Commentator William Jennings Bryan Oleander says that reserving space for contemplation in the statehouse might be just the thing to change the level of today's political discourse.

The comments of William Jennings Bryan Oleander, otherwise known as Tom Averill, Writer-in-Residence at Washburn University. You'll find more of his work on our website at KPR.KU.EDU.
