Mindfulness & Christian Spirituality – Day Course


A day course on Mindfulness and Christian Spirituality

This is follow on course from last year building on some of the practices we learned.

That said, it is a stand-alone day and whilst you do not need to have attended last year’s course to enjoy it, there will also be opportunities to deepen our prayer practice.

Intentions for the day:

– Explore how mindfulness practice can engage with and support the spiritual journey with particular reference to the Christian contemplative tradition
– Serve as a quiet day where participants go away feeling they have had space for deep reflection.
– Share ways that mindfulness could be taken forward for those who choose to.

In this second day we will be deepening our practice to include:

– how to link meditation with bible study
– ‘inquiry’ – how to inquire into our own practice and the process of bringing awareness to our experience

There will be regular breaks throughout the day. Tea and coffee will be provided. Please bring a packed lunch with you.
