As friar, vicar then prior of a reformed Dominican Priory, Fra Angelico (c1395-1455) purposefully designed art to encourage the friars’ and lay-brothers’ prayer, devotion and ministry. His works in San Marco, Florence and commissions throughout Italy, influenced church art for centuries. We will explore what his paintings meant for his contemporaries, how they were used and how we might meaningfully contemplate his works today.

Rev Iain McKillop is a former art-history lecturer, professional painter, and Anglican priest in Southwark Diocese. He specialises in ecclesiastical art and his paintings are regularly exhibited in British cathedrals. He is writing a book on Van Gogh’s religious background and the spiritual meanings within his paintings. He has previously written on William
Blake, Samuel Palmer and John Linnell, John Piper’s Stained Glass and the historic tradition of Stations of the Cross. www.mckillop.weebly.com

Sunrise at Midnight



Martin Laird OSA

Saturday 8 February 

10.30 am – 4.00 pm 

Cost £30 Concessions £20

Please bring a packed lunch.  Coffee and tea provided

 

The purpose of this retreat day is to provide those who practice contemplation the time and space to deepen their practice.  By sitting together in supportive silence at intervals throughout the course of the day, we deepen our contemplative practice by releasing ever more generously into it.  By not attending to the powerful habits of our own inner noise that sustain the illusion of separation from God and create so much suffering, these habits gradually lose their gripping power. The immensely vast silence already within us continues to expand as we are un-selfed of self only to realize (not acquire) ourselves ever hidden with Christ in God (Col 3:3). 

Fr. Martin will consider some of the great stumbling blocks on the contemplative path: the noise of inner chatter; afflictive thoughts; judging our practice; the positive role of boredom; trying too hard to make something ‘spiritual’ happen; turning ourselves into our pet contemplative project; the spirituality marketplace, among other topics.

 

Fr. Martin has lectured and led retreats throughout the US, UK, and Republic of Ireland. He is Professor of Early Christian Studies at Villanova University near Philadelphia and the author of Into the Silent Land, A Sunlit Absence, and his new book An Ocean of Light from Oxford University Press.

Holding the Space: Adventures in Trust, Creativity and Adaptability

Esther Stephenson 

Thursday 13 February and Thursday 22 October 

6.30 - 9.00 pm 

Cost £15 Concessions £10

Light refreshment provided

 

Many people are frustrated at work, feeling they could achieve much more if their working environment was better.  And in our rapidly changing times, much is said about the need for leaders to create workplaces which are more trusting, flexible and creative. In these two interactive sessions, Esther will talk about how a regular meditation practice has helped her lead in a more soulful way, sharing stories and practical examples of how organisations have developed attributes of trust, creativity and adaptability.

 

Esther has worked in senior leadership roles, supporting individuals and groups around the world to improve their place of work. Since experiencing the fruits and benefits of meditation, she now creates space for others to slow down and reflect on their relationship with themselves, with others and the world.

Saturday 7 March 

10.30 am – 4.00 pm 

Cost £30 Concessions £20

Please bring a packed lunch.  Coffee and tea provided

 

This quiet day, unfolding gently, is concerned with the path back to who you really are. Using stories, meditations, interaction and silence, it will give space for the scars and misdirections, as well as the light, the love and the healing. When we become disconnected from who we are, however it happened, it is a long journey home. Based on the book of the same name, ‘The Journey Home’ is a day to consider accurately our particular journey – and the pathway home to our authentic, truthful and beautiful self.

Simon is an author, speaker and consultant. He is CEO of The Mind Clinic, author of (amongst other titles)  Solitude: Recovering the Power of Alone and The Secret Testament of Julian (both White Crow Books) and The Journey Home (Bloomsbury)  http://simonparke.com*******************************

Michelle Charles 

Saturday 14 March

10.30 am – 4.00 pm 

Cost £30 Concessions £20

Please bring a packed lunch.  Coffee and tea provided.

 

Inspired by the Book "The Poetics of Space" by Gaston Bachelard this drawing and mixed media workshop will help us to discover what it is to spend time looking at drawing the essence of objects and their relationship to space whilst creating moments for our own space, taking precious time to listen to ourselves and slow down. This is a practical workshop. Materials will be provided.

 

 Michelle is an artist and a dedicated educator.  Her work is held in public collections across the world including the British Museum, the Wellcome Collection, the museum of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Museum and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Collection USA. *******************************

School of Meditation Essential Teaching Weekend.

Venue: Bishop Woodford House, Ely, CB7 4DX.

Cost: subsidised £85 includes talks, meals and accommodation.

Contact: jacqrussell3@gmail.com or UK office: 020 8280 2283

Have you been meditating in the John Main tradition for more than a year? Do you feel you would like to grow in your understanding of your meditation practice and be more confident about passing it on to others?

An Essential Teaching Weekend is not designed as a retreat but as a participative weekend with presentations by teachers in the community, group discussion and practical exercises. We look together at the history of the tradition passed on by John Main, the essence of the practice, and psychological aspects of the journey. We also think about how to give an introductory talk and the sort of questions people ask when they begin.

The style of the weekend is relaxed and informative and takes place at Bishop Woodford House situated within a short walk from the magnificent Ely Cathedral. The comfortable accommodation is mainly single rooms with shared bathrooms - we are unable to guarantee an ensuite room.

We would like all who want to come to be able to do so and have a fund for bursaries. If you wish to come but it is beyond your means, please contact us to see how we can help. We also help with travel costs if needed.

Cost £85 per person.  For an application form please email jacqrussell3@gmail.com 01296 488450

"He has put the 'Mystery of Time' into our hearts..." cfr. Qoh 3:11

Monica M. Cardona

Wednesday 8 April 

6.30 - 9.00 pm

Cost £15 Concessions £10

Light refreshment provided

 

 

We can all attest to the mysterious nature of time in our lives. We always seem to be running out of time, needing more time, or feeling that time slips through our fingers. Where does time come from and where is it going? Can we be too busy reminiscing about the past and expecting of the future, that we don't pay attention to the here and now?

Yet it is precisely the "here and now" where we find what we are really looking for in all our efforts and search for meaning: God's gift of joy. Join us for an evening of exploring the insights of one of the most elusive books of the Hebrew Bible: Ecclesiastes, aka Qoheleth.

 

Monica M. Cardona is a missionary sister from the Verbum Dei Missionary Fraternity, a new form of consecrated life dedicated to evangelisation through prayer and ministry of the Word. She was born and raised in San Francisco, CA and has a Licenciate in Sacred Scripture from the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome. She has recently completed her doctoral dissertation on the Book of Qoheleth.

Zenedictine! The Spirit of Zen and the Rule of Benedict

Jim Green 

Saturday 18 April 

10.30 am - 4.00 pm 

Cost £30 Concessions £20

Please bring a packed lunch. Coffee and tea provided

 

At first glance the boundary-dissolving impulse of Zen and the regulation of monastic life in a sixth-century Christian text seem to be pulling in different directions. But are they? Today we will reflect together – often in silence – on where the words, be they Buddhist or Benedictine, are pointing: beyond themselves to a universal and joyous mystery.

 

Jim  is neither a Zen master nor a Benedictine monk. However, his life has been greatly influenced by teachers from both of these great traditions. He is an oblate of The World Community for Christian Meditation and the author of Giving Up Without Giving Up: Meditation and Depressions (Bloomsbury, 2019). *******************************

Paying Attention: Meditation as the Path to Reality

Laurence Freeman OSB  

Wednesday 22 April

6.30 - 9.00 pm

Cost £15 Concessions £10

Light refreshment provided

 

Today, meditation is an indispensable antidote to the disease of political and social non-reality.  In the work of the mantra we ‘renounce all the riches of thought and imagination’ by ‘laying aside’ thoughts. The contemplative mind expands through this practice, helping us to see the true reality we are part of.

During this evening, Fr Laurence will explore the idea that ‘to become conscious of even the simplest realities we need to pay attention’ (Simone Weil). Through the teaching of meditation- paying attention- we can begin to learn that fasting from thoughts and images restores our rationality – an essential gift in these confusing times.

Saving Beauty: Recovering the heart of an abundance that can save us

Prof Mark S Burrows 

Saturday 2 May

10.30 - 4.00 pm 

Cost £30 Concessions £20

Please bring a packed lunch.  Coffee and tea provided

 

Beauty is an abundance in the midst of want, a glimpse of wholeness among the fragments. It is that sense of fullness we sometimes glimpse that meets us in our longings. Together we’ll explore Dostoevsky’s bold claim that “beauty alone will save us” – because it has the power to awaken us to the depth of the “ordinary” in our lives, precisely in the midst of the struggles and disappointments we face. For beauty has the capacity to restore us to a way of seeing things “whole” and living into that wholeness in ways that might inspire and encourage us to lead more authentic and centered lives.

 

Mark is a frequent presenter at the Meditatio Centre and is well known internationally as a retreat leader and speaker. He is a poet, translator, scholar of medieval cultures and literatures, with special focus on mystical texts and traditions. His most recent books include a collection of his poetry, The Chance of Home, Paraclete Poetry, 2018 and  Meister Eckhart’s Book of Secrets: Meditations on Letting Go and Finding True Freedom, Hampton Roads Publishing, 2019 www.msburrows.com

The School Retreat is a six day residential intensive. It is suitable for people who have been meditating seriously for some time in our tradition, and have some experience of integrating meditation into daily life.

It forms a very natural progression from the Essential Teaching Weekend and offers a time of silence and stillness with a daily flow of meditation, a short talk and a regular meeting with one of the retreat leaders. It offers a profound, integrated experience of both sides of the spiritual journey of meditation – of solitude and fellowship, and gently opens participants to explore how they are called to share the gift.

The retreat will be held at The Greenhouse Christian Centre, in Poole, Dorset which offers warm and comfortable accommodation in single occupancy
rooms. There is limited availability of ensuite rooms which will be allocated according to need.

Cost £550.00  Bursaries to help with the cost of attending this retreat are available – please ask.  For an application form please email: jacqrussell3@gmail.com or telephone 01296 488450

Creation Made for Relationship: The Holistic Metaphysics of Saint Bonaventure

Fr Tom Herbst OFM

Saturday 16 May 

10.30 am - 4.00 pm 

Cost £30 Concessions £20

Please bring a packed lunch. Coffee and tea provided

 

Saint Bonaventure describes a dynamic creation based on relationship- among the myriad of creatures, with God as source and destination and motivated by the same love shared by the Trinity. Both the Fall and subsequent Redemption, in a similar way to Saint Paul's sweeping vision in Romans 1 and 8, are understood in the same context with Christ, standing in the center of everything, as the point of reference ordering and re-ordering everything that exists as many parts of a whole; like a dazzling mosaic of cosmic dimensions.

 

Fr. Tom has a BA in History, and a M.Div. and MA in Theology. He obtained a D.Phil. in Theology from the University of Oxford.  He is interested in various fields of Franciscan Studies, especially Franciscan Christology and the writings of Francis and Clare and he is Catholic Chaplain for the University of Kent.

Coffee and tea provided

 

What is Spiritual Direction or Accompaniment? What is its origin and is it relevant now? Who is it for and who can become a Spiritual Directors?

So often the church speaks, teaches and instructs but sometimes we need someone to listen to our search for God, to give us the opportunity to share and reflect on the hand of God in our everyday life, Spiritual Direction offers this non-judgmental space for personal reflection. One area most directees share is worries about their prayer life, it seems most people worry that they don’t pray as well as they think they should; prayer is at the heart of our journey to God, this gives us the only true direction.

 

Marie is director of the Training Programme is Spiritual Direction at Aylesford Priory  (https://spiritualdirectionaylesford.co.uk) previously at the Franciscan International Study Centre, and retired Southwark Faith Formation Advisor.

Being Human – Reflecting on Artificial Intelligence as Threat or Promise

Rev Canon Malcolm Brown 

Wednesday 3 June 

6.30 - 9.00 pm

Cost £15 Concessions £10

Light refreshment provided

 

In this session, we will consider some of the profound questions raised by technological developments which not only seem to be cleverer than humans but which also seem to know more about us than we know about ourselves. How should we think about the human person so that the things we cherish are not taken over by machines?

 

Dr Malcolm is the Director of Mission and Public Affairs for the Church of England. He is an ethicist whose early research was in the field of ethics and market economics. He has created a hub within his department for exploring the ethical challenges of AI, robotics and big data. As well as his work on behalf of the church, he is a partner in the Centre for Doctoral Training in AI Ethics at the University of Bath.

Experiment with Light 

Angela Greenwood 

Saturday 13 June 

10.30 am – 4.00 pm 

Cost £30 Concessions £20

Please bring a packed lunch.  Coffee and tea provided

Experiment with Light (EwL) is a Quaker spiritual practice where we open to the ‘Light’ within a context of stillness.  We might hold a particular concern in the Light, and just wait … becoming open in silence … to insights, images, inspirations or challenges perhaps. This is a guided meditation practice anyone can engage with and practice.

Angela has practiced Christian meditation for years, and more recently has been involved in both facilitating and teaching EwL locally and around the country. She is passionate about sharing the practice outside Quakers.*******************************

The Compassion of the Mystics 

Prof Bernard McGinn 

Wednesday 24 June 

6.30 - 9.00 pm

Cost £15 Concessions £10

As a central practice in the Christian life, compassion has a long history. Three mystics who provide rich examples of sumpatheia/compassio are Francis of Assisi, his contemporary the Belgian Cistercian Ida of Nivelles, and Francis de Sales. This talk will probe the contours of true compassion through the lives of the mystics and saints who illustrate this power to transform life.       

 

Bernard is the Naomi Shenstone Donnelly Professor emeritus of the University of Chicago, where he taught for thirty-four years before retiring in 2003. Since his retirement he has continued to teach, lecture and write. His major work is a history of western Christian mysticism under the general title The Presence of God, seven volumes of which have been published between 1991 and 2017.*******************************
