Event description

Description

A talk including a period of meditation and with time for questions.

Following in the footsteps of John Main, Fr Laurence, has been teaching the recovery of the contemplative wisdom tradition in the Church, and in society at large, for forty years. A Benedictine monk, he serves as the spiritual guide and Director of our World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM). Before entering monastic life, he had experience with the United Nations, in banking and in journalism. As Director of Meditatio, the outreach program of WCCM, he engages with the secular world on the themes of Education, Mental Health, Business, Addiction and Recovery, Interfaith, and the Environment.

An international speaker and retreat leader and author of many books, his “Sensing God: Learning to Meditate during Lent” is especially recommended at this season. He now resides at the community’s international retreat centre, Bonnevaux, near Poitiers, France.

Refreshments from 10.00am. Meditation 10.45am. Followed by the talk and questions

A simple, shared lunch of soup and a roll will be available, from 12.30pm to 1.30pm, for those who wish to stay. You are welcome to bring a packed lunch, or other food, if you prefer.

This event is for local WCCM meditators and group members. However, we hope you will invite friends interested in meditation to the afternoon event which follows.

Fr Laurence will give the second talk in the Cathedral at 2.15pm.

This talk, Sources of Wisdom in "A World Gone Mad", is open to the general public.

Registration for both events is free. You need to register separately for each event.

There is a suggested donation on the day, to cover expenses, if you can.

£10 for one event. £15 if attending both. Students - no donation required
