Date & Time
10:00 am - 5:30 pm
Father Tom Ryan
Contemplation leads to a mysterious knowledge of the loving union we have with the Divine. Discover the mystical and contemplative tradition of Christianity, including the foundational principles of meditation and historical highlights of the practices of Christian meditation. We’ll look at the range of ways in which Christians meditate today, and cover the sacred word and how mantra found its way back to Christianity, and much more.
Up until about 500 years ago, Christianity taught that meditation is an essential part of spiritual life and open to all. It is time for us to reclaim that heritage. The adventure of our lives is the discovery that deep down at the heart of our being we are in direct and immediate contact with the Source of all that is.
