Desert Wisdom & Oriental Spirituality : Inner Silence
Led by Joseph Wong OSB
Pre-Seminar retreat led by Laurence Freeman OSB
Hong Kong September 16-25, 2013
The practice of Christian meditation taught by John Main can be traced back to the Desert Fathers, in their effort to achieve inner silence and thereby union with God through purity of heart and unceasing prayer. The contemplative-prophetic spirituality of our time is a development from this tradition. Joseph Wong will explore this ancient wisdom, showing its affinity with some Buddhist practices and indicating its contemporary relevance.
