Guided Meditation – Fridays 5.30 – 6.15 pm

An introduction to Christian mindfulness for those who wish to explore silent prayer. It is easier to learn to meditate in the company of others, and we invite you to come and join us. All meditation involves learning to still the chatter of the mind, but Christian mediation has a particular emphasis on the positive experience of the Spirit of God at a deeper level than is normally possible.

The session begins with an introduction, that both offers a specific theme for meditation and, over the weeks, provides basic guidance in the technique of meditation. Then we go into silence by lighting a candle, burning incense, and singing a chant. The silence lasts about 20 minutes; then there is time in which people can share with the group any issues they wish. The session ends with brief prayers.

There is also a Meditative Eucharist at 5.00 pm on Sundays.
