Why Meditation Matters with Fr Laurence Freeman

October 10 @ 10:30 am - 3:15 pm

Why Meditation Matters: with Fr Laurence Freeman

Hosted by Retreat House Chester on Zoom

Join Retreat House Chester for a special Soulful Saturday in a remarkable and challenging year – to explore meditation and why it matters, with Fr Laurence Freeman OSB, monk, teacher and Director of The World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM) a global, inclusive contemplative community.

Fr Laurence writes: “In the corona crisis a powerful light has been shone upon the even greater crisis of our time that humanity faces. In such a time it is not only ideas or policies that matter but a new way of observing reality and of seeing what is real. This is the contemplative consciousness that releases wisdom and influences all dimensions of experience. If Christianity is to contribute its unique and universal vision of wisdom it must become more confidently and explicitly a contemplative religious force. This is not mere abstraction but a matter of life. That is why practising and teaching meditation in the Christian tradition matters. How do we become a contemplative Church?”

Tickets – £15
10.30am – 3.15pm – Delivered in two sessions (morning and afternoon), with plenty of time for lunch
