I live in Monmouth and have been a meditator and member of the WCCM for over 20 years. Before moving to Wales I was the regional co-ordinator for Gloucestershire and Worcestershire, which involved liaising with and supporting all the meditation groups in that area and putting on events such as quiet days and retreats. I am currently the co-ordinator for South East Wales, where I have been involved in delivering training in Christian Meditation with Children to staff in primary schools. Meditation is a very important part of my life and I welcome the opportunity to share this ‘pearl of great price’.
Poppy lives in Brecon where she co-leads a weekly meditation group. She has been a meditator and group leader for 10 years, previously in East Yorkshire, where she also ran sessions in day conferences on prayer and spirituality. She is a member of the regional wccm.org network. She was influenced by a longstanding friend, the late Rev David Wood, who did much to establish and strengthen the WCCM community in the UK.
This session will introduce participants to the practice of Christian Meditation, as developed by Father John Main, a Benedictine monk, from the tradition of the Desert Fathers and Mothers in the 5thCentury, particularly the writings of John Cassian. Meditation is simple but not easy and there will be opportunities to share experience and to practice a short period of meditation. For more information on the World Community for Christian Meditation, see wccm.org.uk
The maximum number of participants in each workshop is limited, so book early to avoid disappointment!
