Although not currently meeting because of COVID-19 restrictions, our meditation group usually meets on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 8:15 pm in the church. The format is some opening words to reflect on, music to settle in, 20 minutes of silence, and then closing words and music. Some instruction is given to help those new to meditation.
Coming from the contemplative tradition within Christianity, and closely related to meditation practices in the other great world religions, this is a time to practise deep listening in stillness and silence. It is the prayer of the Holy Spirit within us, reaching for God. We often use short readings from the Christian mystics, as well as from poets, teachers and the Bible.
All are welcome, regardless of faith or denomination.
