Please bring a packed lunch.  Coffee and tea provided

John Main described the 14th century classic:  The Cloud of Unknowing as ‘the most succinct, practical and balanced guide to meditation in the English mystical tradition.’   On this day we shall explore its main themes, and look at how they may be used and adapted by ordinary people in the very different circumstances of today.   The emphasis will be developing our own personal practice.

Graeme Watson is an Anglican priest, who has worked in pastoral posts in UK and in Tanzania, and in training men and women for ordained and lay ministries.  In 2003 he was the co-founder of an ecumenical weekly Christian Meditation group at St Mary’s Parish Church in Stoke Newington in North London.    A spiritual director, he leads poetry workshops and retreats, and teaches Meditation in the WCCM.   He is the author of “Strike the Cloud: Understanding and Practising the teaching of the Cloud of Unknowing”, SPCK, 2011; The Song of Songs: A Contemplative Guide, SPCK, 2014. 

He has recently recorded 8 talks about The Cloud of Unknowing” for WCCM (available on the website www.wccm.org ).
