That's my mistake. I've also just realised this (before having read your comment).

Contemplative Science is seen as a new discipline.

Why?

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

all science involves some contemplation or you're not doing it right.

Contemplation here means meditation, entering other levels of consciousness (yes, that fuzzy stuff). 'Contemplative Science' encourages dialogue and research between empirical scientists and contemplative 'scientists'.
