Love of silence is a quality emphasised and affirmed in the Rule of St. Benedict, and a traditional value of monastic life. Yet the cultivation of silence is something very difficult in our modern world, and often not understood or appreciated. Drawing from Thomas Keating’s foundations for centring prayer and the Christian contemplative life, this weekend will consider dimensions and stages of contemplative prayer, steps in centring prayer, St. Anthony in the tombs, and cultivating a spirituality in everyday life. Time will also be allocated for meditation sessions.
Led by Dom Paul Forster, osb
