Mindfulness and Christian Spirituality
Join us for an introductory day of mindfulness practice. The day will be led by Anglican priest and celebrated author of the book, Mindfulness and Christian Spirituality. Making Space for God. Mindfulness means awareness, a lucid and appreciative ‘knowing’ what we are doing as we are doing it.
Come and explore what mindfulness has to offer Christianity; we will do this primarily through the experience of simple mindfulness practices. Through the practices, Tim will also reflect on such questions as: can mindfulness help us to find the stillness of God in the storm?; can mindfulness help us to know God’s will?; can mindfulness help us to love our neighbours and our enemies? The day is aimed at those who have an interest in mindfulness and the gifts it offers Christian Spirituality. No prior experience of mindfulness required; experienced practitioners of mindfulness are also welcome.
Tim Stead is an Anglican priest and Area Dean in the Oxford Diocese. He has practiced Christian forms of contemplative prayer for 30 years and is an accredited Mindfulness teacher at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre (http://oxfordmindfulness.org/business-homepage/about/), the only priest in the Church of England to have done this training.
Praise for Tim’s book from John Pritchard, retired Bishop of Oxford: “This is the book on mindfulness many of us have been waiting for! Tim Stead writes with disarming honesty for anyone seeking a fruitful and truthful way to live”.
