Christian Meditation in Cumbria


We have some dates for your diary from January to June 2019. Block them out now so you don’t lose out!


Our programme for January to June is now available. Please click this link to view it: http://2014.cmcwccm.fastmail.fm/index.html/ProgrammeJanJun2019.pdf

On Saturday 26th January at Ambleside Parish CentreBob Morley will be leading a Day of Gathering for the community, centering around our one-ness in the stillness and silence of meditation. We will look into our hearts for our direct experience of God as Love, with reflections from mystics past and present. We will also look at the notion of the existence, or not, of sin. The day will also include lectio divina and time for questions and discussion. Please download the poster here and display if you are able: http://2014.cmcwccm.fastmail.fm/index.html/Ambleside260119.pdf

Our Hyning retreat this year is Friday 29nd March – Sunday 31st March. It will be lead by Anthony Finnerty on the theme The Wayless Way of Meister Eckhart. The weekend will include a general introduction to some of the key themes of Eckhart’s mystical teaching and opportunity to explore the paradoxical silence he promotes. This will be a time for meditation woven in alongside presentations and discussion.

We’re very pleased to welcome Neil Douglas-Klotz to Ambleside Parish Centre Saturday 11th May for a day entitled Hidden Gospel: Meditations with the Aramaic Words of Jesus. Chanting and meditating with the words of Jesus in his native Aramaic language has become one of the most widespread methods of community-based, devotional contemplative prayer and ritual. Using Aramaic (either aloud or silently) offers one a direct connection—through vibration, sound and breath—to the spirituality of person who used the words, as well as to the indigenous Christianity of the Middle East

I’d like to draw your attention to Caring for Our Common Home, a day conference on Saturday, 2nd February organised by the Cumbria Theological Society. For more information, please follow this link https://caringforourcommonhome.org/

New year blessings from Richard!
