Who are we?
We are an inter faith group who practise Christian Mediation in the tradition of the Desert Fathers reintroduced in our times to Christian communities by John Main and continued now by Fr. Laurence Freeman and the World Community for Christian Meditation. During the present epidemic the Christian Meditation Group in Luxembourg is continuing to meet on Zoom every Thursday evening at 18.30.
Newcomers and people of all faiths and none are welcome. For further information telephone Marcella McCarthy at 691435788 or email her here.
Further information about this form of meditation can be found on the World Community for Christian Meditation website http://www.wccm.org or by watching this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvFneqPA8U8
The WCCM website also lists on-line talks, discussions and retreats. Most of these require a modest payment (or ‘offering’) – probably WCCM’s main source of income. Of particular interest in 2022 is the new special series Unified Consciousness: One mind one heart. See https://wccm.org/events/unified-consciousness/ .
Looking back: the principal speaker at the 2019 John Main Seminar in Vancouver was the Australian Anglican priest Sarah Bachelard. She gave five, brilliant and inspirational, talks on Contemplation and Christianity in our Time. You can listen to her talks here https://wccm.org/content/john-main-seminar-2019-in-canada-a-memorable-edition-led-by-sarah-bachelard/ . Highly recommended!
There is also here: https://wccm.org/news/watch-the-dialogue-on-unified-consciousness-with-hh-the-dalai-lama-and-fr-laurence-freeman-osb/ an interesting (free) discussion between Laurence Freeman, the Director of WCCM and the Dalai Lama that took place in December 2021
‘On the ground’ retreats and workshops are also offered at the home of the WCCM community, the beautiful Bonnevaux Abbey near Poitiers in France. See www.bonnevauxwccm.org for all the details.
