Start 2015 by learning a way to develop your spiritual life through the power of meditation. A meditation practice can help you relax, decrease your anxiety and open your heart and soul to a deeper relationship with God. You can experience more peace and calm in your life.
This workshop will teach you a simple way of meditating that you can put into practice immediately. You will leave knowing how to meditate and understanding the deeper purpose of a meditation practice. We are called to be still and quiet so that we can hear the whisper of God’s voice in our hearts. Sitting meditation is based on one simple, universal principle: that sitting still is a source of wisdom.
The presenter, Sister Jane Comerford, CSJ, has taught methods of meditation to many people during her years of ministry as a spiritual director. She believes that “God calls us today to a deeper awareness of His presence in us and to a deeper consciousness; we are called to put on the mind of Christ.” Sitting in meditation can help us do that.
