CHRISTIAN MEDITATION CLASSES
These classes will be helpful for anyone seeking a deeper spiritual life – especially anyone interested in exploring basic teaching on Christian meditation as a way to finding stillness and meaning in their life.
Meditation is a very powerful aid to inner peace.
This simple practice is based on the teaching of the Benedictine Monk, John Main, who said – ‘The important aim in Christian meditation is to allow God’s mysterious and silent presence within us to become more and more not only a reality but the reality which gives meaning, shape and purpose to everything we do, everything we are.’
John Main’s work is carried on by the World Community for Christian Meditation and its Director FR LAURENCE FREEMAN OSB (www.wccm.org).

John Main said – “To learn to meditate you have to learn to be silent and not to be afraid of silence…. ..In meditation we cross the threshold from background noise into silence. This is vital for us because silence is necessary if the human spirit is to thrive and to be creative. Silence releases a creative response to life, to our environment and friends because it gives our spirit room to breathe, room to be. In silence we do not have to justify ourselves, apologise or impress anyone. Just be.”
