Spirit Matters, Preparing for Christmas
Led by Laurence Freeman OSB
Registration starts 9.45 am
Cost £30 – Please bring a packed lunch. Coffee and tea provided.
For several years now Laurence Freeman OSB has led a preparation day for Christmas right at one of the busiest times of the year. This season highlights the real priorities in our lifestyle. So often we are driven only by materialistic values and distractions. Yet Christmas dramatically transcends the dualism of Divine and Human or spiritual and material. This is the meaning of these particular days - that can renew us daily. Meditation puts the vision into practice and so will be an integral part of this day of preparation for Christmas this year which Fr Laurence will again lead.
Laurence Freeman is a Benedictine monk and the spiritual successor of John Main. He is the Director of The World Community for Christian Meditation. Author, retreat leader and international speaker, Fr Laurence sees the contemplative as the essential dimension of all spirituality.
