Meditation in Radcliffe

Meditation is a great way to enhance your wellbeing, reduce stress, improve focus and create inner peace.  For many people mediation also forms part of their regular spiritual practice. 

A friendly, supportive group meets at Wellspring House, Radcliffe on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. Please arrive at 6.50pm for a 7.00pm start.

The Group follows a pattern of silent meditation set by John Main (1926-1982). John Main was a Benedictine monk and his simple approach to meditation is grounded in early Christian and ancient Buddhist traditions.

Each meditation session opens with some relaxing music, a prayer and short reading. This is followed by a 20 minute silent meditation. To aid focus, participants are invited to use a mantra or prayer-word or to bring their attention to their breath. We close with another short prayer and some music.

This gentle practice is suitable for new and experienced meditators.  After meditation, participants are welcome to stay for hot drinks, biscuits and a chat.  There is no charge for meditation sessions.  However all meditators are invited to make a small change donation. This helps with the running costs of Wellspring House and contributes to the World Community for Christian Meditation, who provide the group with valuable support and resources.

Meditation is increasing in popularity and this group offers a warm welcome to people of all faiths and none.
