We were delighted to welcome Laurence Freeman OSB, monk and teacher, Director of The World Community for Christian Meditation, Bonnevaux.  Laurence addressed us on the following topic:


Our conversation is in heaven (Phil 3:20)

With the disastrous breakdown of social discourse in our time, the rediscovery of contemplative silence in the truth of solitude is a priority we cannot ignore – and the contemplatives of the world are called to lead it.

A truly inspiring ‘conversation’ with Laurence which we recorded so we can share with you all.  See button below to view.
