Event description
This workshop will explore some of the deep spiritual insights of one of the greatest Christian masters of prayer, Meister Eckhart.

About this event

“The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God's eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.”

With startlingly directness, Eckhart invites us to let go of all our conceptions of God, enter the groundless-ground in which we are one with God and all creation, and return as places of love and peace in the world.

Through a series of short talks, meditation practice and conversation we’ll explore:

  • Guidelines for meditation practice in the thought of Meister Eckhart
  • How silence and stillness dissolve the illusion that we are separate from God and from each other
  • Forming a new relationship with life characterised by greater freedom, compassion and well-being
  • Establishing peace in ourselves to become places of peace for those around us and the world

Ultimately, meditation is not about mastering techniques, it’s about relationship. It’s the quiet, steady work of simply being here, fully present for the gift of our life. Which means it’s also the quiet, steady work of being present with and for those around us. Because all that we have, all that we are, is born in and from relationship.

What people are saying

"I thought the workshop was exceptional! I cannot begin to describe the clarity and energy I have felt since the session."
