Meditation Group

Weekly Meditation &Contemplation Group

We invite you to practice meditation with the support of a group. Our group uses an approach to meditation/contemplation based on the Christian tradition. Everyone is welcome, whether you are looking for a spiritual practice, spiritual companionship, have no affiliation with any Spiritual Tradition, but want to meditate for the many known health benefits.     We practice meditation sitting on a chair so it is suitable for all age groups and mobility levels.

Spirit of Hope

"This is the chapter set aside for the Book of Revelation, that source of so many profitable end- times books and so much religio-political hysteria.

I’ve been most influenced in my reading of Revelation by Allan Boesak’s Comfort and Protest, and by the work of Juan Stam (which, unfortunately, hasn’t yet been translated from Spanish into English. I hope it will be!). I was also influenced by a passage in Romano Guardini’s The Lord, which I quoted in at least one of my earlier books. He was one of the first writers who pointed out the obvious fact that Revelation is dream language, and therefore should be interpreted as we would interpret a dream. (That’s bad news for those who interpret it as a history of the future!)

As I wrote this chapter, I was deeply moved by the power of that echoing word “Come!” in Revelation’s last chapter. What a way for the last book in the biblical library to end!” - Brian D. McLaren

The Hope - A Guide to Sacred Activism

"Ten Things You Can Do Right Now - Let me offer you ten things you can do right now, or within the next 24 hours, to start to align yourself with the power and hope of Sacred Activism. The first six will invite you into deep, nourishing connection with your spirit; the last four will help you express the compassion and joy this connection awakens in you in action.” - Andrew Harvey.

 

  Monthly at a home at 7.30 pm. The next meeting is on Monday 23rd October 2017
