The new Quaker weekly meditation group from Fri May 4th

The new Quaker weekly meditation group

The first meeting of the new Quaker weekly meditation group will be held in the Meeting House library on Friday May 4 at 10 am. We will meet at 10:00 to settle down and get centred. The guided meditation will last approximately 30 minutes from 10:30 to 11:00. You are then free to leave if you want — or stay and share your experiences. There will be no fee for this event. We will be practising the Experiment with Light meditation.

Experiment with Light is a Quaker practice which is based on early Friends’ discoveries. It was devised in 1996 by Quaker and theologian Rex Ambler following his study of early Friends’ writings. The process is enhanced by the use of a technique known as ‘Focusing’, a psychotherapeutic process developed by psychotherapist Eugene Gendlin in collaboration with psychologist Carl Rogers. 

Although the Experiment with Light can be practised alone, there is great benefit in the group experience: trust grows as the group learns to share its experiences openly. Early Friends found this experience of opening to the Light in groups led to great love between them and enabled them to support each other unconditionally during times of great hardship.

Everyone is welcome.
