Within the heart of the community, a fire that warms and dances
Within the heart of each of us, a spark of the spirit of life.

Sunday 8 July – Contemplation

“I believe that learning to do compassionate acts from a contemplative foundation is the greatest art form.” Father Richard Rohr

How do we achieve a contemplative state? Are there necessary conditions or can it arise naturally? How is action linked to contemplation and are there any health benefits to it?

Join us as Angela Cooper leads our explorations. Starts 10.30 am. All welcome.

Tuesday 3 July – the pool in the forest meditation

If the outer world overwhelms us, we can always withdraw to our own inner world, the forest of our thoughts, feelings, and inspirations. Deep within that forest is a pool, fed by an underground stream. When the ripples on the pool die down, it reflects the sky in silent contemplation. Meditation is the key to this silent pool within our hearts. Om Shanti.

Led by Mike Rutter. Starts 7.30 pm. All welcome.
