The purpose of this paper is to report findings from a Parse research method study conducted to discover the structure of the experience of contentment with 10 women over the age of 65, and to contribute to knowledge about human becoming-the nursing theory guiding this study. Contentment is a phenomenon related to health and quality of life. It arose as a core concept in the findings of Parse method studies on hope, joy-sorrow, and laughter and health. The research question, What is the structure of the lived experience of contentment? was answered through the processes of the method: dialogical engagement (not an interview, but a true presence), extraction-synthesis, and heuristic interpretation. The structure is: The lived experience of contentment is a satisfying calmness amid the arduous as resolute liberty arises with benevolent engagements. The structure is comprised of three core concepts which arose from participants' descriptions: satisfying calmness amid the arduous, resolute liberty, and benevolent engagements. These will be discussed in detail with illustrations, and connected to the extant literature on contentment. Implications for the advancement of nursing knowledge, future research, and practice will be presented.
