LAURENCE FREEMAN AT THE CENTRE: Meditation as the Path to Reality

 

Paying Attention: Meditation as the Path to Reality

Laurence Freeman OSB  

Wednesday 22 April

6.30 - 9.00 pm

Cost £15 Concessions £10

Light refreshment provided

 

Today, meditation is an indispensable antidote to the disease of political and social non-reality.  In the work of the mantra we ‘renounce all the riches of thought and imagination’ by ‘laying aside’ thoughts. The contemplative mind expands through this practice, helping us to see the true reality we are part of.

During this evening, Fr Laurence will explore the idea that ‘to become conscious of even the simplest realities we need to pay attention’ (Simone Weil). Through the teaching of meditation- paying attention- we can begin to learn that fasting from thoughts and images restores our rationality – an essential gift in these confusing times.
