Christian Meditation 102: Journey and Fruits of Christian Meditation

“The way of pure prayer is a journey centred in Christ.” - Laurence Freeman

“We should not judge the value of our meditation by “how we feel.” A hard and apparently fruitless meditation may in fact be much more valuable than one that is easy, happy, enlightened and apparently a big success.”

Thomas Merton.

We will explore the questions:
- How can we best understand this journey?
- What are the stages of the journey?
- What happens in the process of Meditation?

Date: 7 July 2018
Fee: $35

Meditation - Retreat Day

“Silence is the essential human response to the mystery of God. Meditation is the way to silence, the way of silence.” - John Main

This Retreat Day is for those who are experienced in Christian Meditation as part of their daily prayer.
This will be a Day of Silence, contemplative prayer, input, and times for meditation.

Date: 22 September 2018
Fee: $35
