We meet for an hour on the first and third Tuesday in each month. Each year we adopt a new ‘theme’ which gives shape and focus to each of our meetings.
We start each meeting with an introduction to the evening. There follows a period of readings, prayers and poems interspersed with short periods of silence for reflection. This period leads to our main period of silence (typically 20 minutes) which provides an opportunity to sink into a deeper place with a suspension of the ego and active thinking, called contemplation. This period of silence is followed by a conclusion, and a short discussion.
We normally meet on Zoom, gathering from 7:15 pm for a 7:30 pm start, and finishing by 8:30pm. For a link, please email email@example.com
Through 2024, our reflections will be based on the book 'The Music of Eternity' by Robyn Wrigley-Carr, which is itself inspired by the writings of Evelyn Underhill. The programme for the next three months is as follows:
5th December: Advent Prayer
19th December: Advent Contemplation
2nd January: The Incarnate Christ
16th January: Silence
6th February: Expectation
20th February: The Tempted Christ
