Meditation in the Christian Tradition
Meditation has been part of the Christian tradition since the 4th and 5th centuries and recently has been revived as a form of prayer available to everyone. In our hectic, distracted lives, spending time in silence and stillness enables us to nurture the spirit within us. Meditation is not an escape from life, it is a simple daily practice which we can adapt to our busy lives, wherever we are.
Currently the parish has a meditation group in the three parish centres of Maleny, Montville and Kenilworth. The groups meet weekly to listen to a teaching related to meditation and to share a time of silence and stillness. Our groups are associated with the World Community of Christian Meditation which is based in London. The organisation has a website which provides readings, teachings, information about groups throughout the world, and many other offerings. The web address is: wccm.org
