Contemplation and the Gentle Life with Martin Laird, O.S.A

 

Saturday 10 April Online from 7.00 pm - 8.30 pm GMT

£15/ £10 concession (OAP, student, low or unwaged)

In the desert tradition ‘gentleness’ was not so much a character trait like being mild mannered.  It was the fruit of ordeal.  During this evening’s presentatation Fr. Martin will speak of focusing our attention within and meeting without comment, the trip-wires of our own anger, fear, aggression—no matter the affliction.  Here we discover that the ordeal itself, becomes the place of enlightenment, the bright awareness of an open heart.  By way of the ordeal we are gentled.

 

THE TALK WILL BE RECORDED AND ALL THOSE WHO REGISTER WILL BE SENT A LINK AFTERWARDS TO WATCH AGAIN

 

Martin Laird, O.S.A., is Professor of Early Christian Studies at Villanova University.  Fr. Laird has written numerous books and articles on early Christian thought and Christian contemplative life, including the best-selling Into the Silent Land; A Sunlit Absence; and An Ocean of Light.  He lectures and leads retreats widely throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, and Ireland.
