Over this day we will learn about the roots of Christian meditation, Jesus’ call to go into the ‘inner room’, the Desert Fathers, the great tradition of Christian contemplative prayer and the essential teachings of this beautiful form of praying.
There will be time to meditate, to discover how to pray in a new and fresh way; to find out about the commitment to ‘turning up’ and the importance of the group.
We will explore how meditation heals those wounds of the shadow, leads to self-knowledge and opens us to the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. We will also learn about the World Community for Christian Meditation and the New Zealand Community for Christian Meditation.
