It’s Not What You Think: meditation and yoga as Christian practices

You are not what you think you are. Your body is not what you think it is. God is not who you think God is. Meditation takes us beyond thought so that we begin to see things as they really are and love them as they really are. Christians have practised meditation from the very beginning. Body work teaches us to be present to ourselves, so that we can be present to Christ within and prepared for meditation. 

This weekend is open to all, whether you are a complete beginner, beginning again or already on the way. N.B. The body work will be adapted to the capabilities of participants but you will need to be able to work standing, sitting and lying on the floor. Bring a mat if you have one.
