London Centre for Spirituality programme for Autumn

(re)Connecting with God - Autumn 2015

10 Monday evenings 6:30 - 8:30pm
from 28th September (excluding 26th October)
with Annette Kaye and David Cherry

We are pleased to announce that we will be running this group again in 2015.

(re) Connecting with God is  for anyone wishing to explore their spirituality in an open and non-partisan way. It is an opportunity to discover more about who you are, what you want from life, what life wants from you, and who or what God is for you. ‘God’ is a tricky word and we all mean something different by it.

We trust that God is good and is at work in us and in our lives, and this group offers the space and some tools for us to pay attention, notice, listen and connect to this God. Our exploration together is experiential and will involve exercises on our own and in groups, sharing experiences and learning from each other. This group is neither a therapy group nor a course of study and, although we happen to be Christian, it is open to anyone wishing to explore and discover.  Read more and book.

Just Announced...

Praying with the Whole of our Being 
Friday, October 30th, 11 - 4pm  Cost £45
with Jenny Williams

This is an opportunity to connect with the original words that Jesus spoke and allow the sound of them to touch us body, mind, emotion and spirit. We will learn the first few lines of the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic, slowly, one line at a time, and learn to chant them - gradually adding simple body movements that can be done seated or standing. There will be time for personal reflection, some silence and sharing.  Read more and book
