Justice - a Meditatio Seminar


In a society that is increasingly dependent on legislation to define its values and run its institutions, what is happening to justice? How do we know what is the right thing to do? How do we handle conflict with those who think differently from ourselves? How do we deal with people who do wrong things? The answers to these questions not only take us to the heart of our legal and social systems but to the heart of our very selves. This Meditatio Seminar will explore the spiritual dimension of justice revealed in all these responses.

John Main Collected Talks

The Collected Talks of John Main make available to people today the unique and transforming power of his oral teaching. The best form of a spiritual teaching has always been the spoken word. These talks were the first phase of what later became The World Community for Christian Meditation, the global contemplative family that continues to grow through the inspiration of his teaching. Each of the eight sets of the Collected Talks is published as a book with the same title.

John Main Seminar 2013

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.
