– Contemplation and the Healing of the World –

Coronavirus has led to a heightened awareness that the created world is not separate from us, that all we have and enjoy in the world arises through a network of relationships, that our life depends on this interdependent whole.

Contemplation, the practice of stillness, of deep looking and deep listening, not only helps us embrace the essential interconnectedness and unity of creation, but also to respond to those around us and our environment with greater and love and gratitude.

Exploring the contemplative skills of deep looking and deep listening, this practical session will begin a conversation to be further explored in the July half-day online retreat.

“We are not separate from those around us. Human personhood is entirely dependent on the relationships and love, encounters and gifts that create and sustain it. We are intimately connected to everything. Which means we have a moral responsibility towards this whole, because our actions have a direct influence and impact upon this whole”.

The sessions will be led by Chris Whittington.

Chris was introduced to meditation in the Christian tradition at 19 when living at the Benedictine monastery of Prinknash Abbey in the Cotswolds. He has been COO of WCCM (the World Community for Christian Meditation), gives regular talks and leads retreats across the UK and is a spiritual director. Chris is also a Partner and Head of Education Law at Anthony Collins Solicitors

This event will be accessible to Christians of all denominations and to people of all faiths and none.
