The Sunday Letters

- by Jana Marie -


A weekly newsletter on contemplative thinking.


In their characteristically gentle way, Sundays present us with what is so often a much-needed opportunity for stillness. A time to reconnect and re-center, they allow us the space to check in with both ourselves and others.

Every Sunday, we’ll be diving deeper into this richly reflective space with a carefully crafted, thought-provoking letter. These letters could be about anything and everything, but the goal of each one will always be the same: to invite a shared moment of quiet contemplation — and careful consideration — into the lives of its readers.

“A breath of fresh air”

“I always look forward to reading Jana’s emails; it’s a breath of fresh air, … a timely reminder to take things slow and live in the moment.”

Andi Lanuza

“Keep[s] you thinking”

The Sunday Letters are always a thoughtful and welcome stop during my week. You get a moment to pause, to consider and to reflect … and Jana often leaves you with a question to keep you thinking long after you’ve finished reading. I love these letters and find myself forwarding them regularly to friends and family.”

Scott Burau

“A quiet affirmation”

“I feel like Jana is a friend — the smart one who reads books that intimidate you — that shows up every two weeks to share something that’s on her mind. … Each letter feels like a quiet affirmation that we are all moving through a life filled with curious people, perspectives, and ideas.”


“Elegant, thoughtful ponderings for anyone. I love how each letter commands you to slow down, absorb, and let it move you.”
Lauren Stephenson

“Jana keeps on finding surprisingly simple yet touching ways to remind us that the most effective actions in the world are those within the reach of everyone.”

“Reading a Sunday Letter is like briefly talking philosophy with a trusted friend. Short and simple but deep and fulfilling.”
