Online Morning Meditation on Wednesdays, 745am-830am 

The Wednesday group includes a range of practices: including reflection on poetry and a beautiful guided meditation using a finger labyrinth suitable for online meditation. If you have access to a printer please print off either a Chartres Labyrinth Image or a Classical Labyrinth image (whichever you prefer) and a Finger Labyrinth Meditation Guide which provides a suggested approach to meditation using the finger labyrinth. If you don’t have access to a home printer don’t worry as you can simply open these documents on your tablet, desktop or laptop and view them on your screen.

No prior experience of meditation or labyrinths is needed.

Online Morning Meditation on Saturdays, 8am-9am  

The Saturday group includes a series of gently guided meditations during the first 30 minutes, including a Gratitude Practice and an inspiring poem. The person hosting the meditation introduces each practice.

The second 30 minutes is an ancient form of contemplative practice called Lectio Divina, literally meaning divine reading. The invitation of Lectio Divina is to cultivate a heart-centred intimacy with the sacred text of the Bible, listening deeply with what St Benedict called “the ears of the heart”. This is a rich and illuminating way to explore the wisdom found in the Bible.

No prior expeirence of meditation or Lectio Divina is necessary.
