This year has been really draining for all of us and during exam season and the ongoing pandemic, we thought it would be helpful to centre our issue around relaxation and calmness in order to bring about some sense of tranquillity into your lives. Mindfulness is implicitly present through this issue and we hope that this influences you to focus on your mental wellbeing which is so important nowadays.

I’d really like to thank everybody that contributed to this volume as we had an impressive number of submissions for exam season. This volume is about calmness, both the history of calmness and the history of what makes our contributors calm. I’d like to especially thank Madeleine Weir for her video on the spirituality of Glastonbury. We hope this volume can be a calming distraction from stressful exam revision. Enjoy!
