Understanding Islam with Dr Chris Hewer @ The Ammerdown Centre Ammerdown Park Radstock
Oct 24 – Oct 26 all-day

24 – 26 October Understanding Islam with Dr Chris Hewer Chris writes: “A good understanding of Islam is a must in Britain today, where Muslims are by far the biggest religious group after British Christians. In many of our major towns and cities, they make up a substantial minority of the population. This should encourage us all to get to know Islam and Muslims better and to explore ways of building bridges of mutual respect and understanding – especially those among us involved with Muslims as neighbours, workplace acquaintances, or clients in the caring professions.

PERENNIAL WISDOM FOR TROUBLED TIMES @ St. James Priory, Whitson Street,
Oct 31 @ 7:15 pm – 9:15 pm

CYNTHIA BOURGEAULT

PERENNIAL WISDOM FOR TROUBLED TIMES

Contemplative Awakening

and Conscious Engagement

Tuesday October 31st 7.15 p.m.

St. James Priory, Whitson Street,

Bristol BS1 3NZ

Booking, cost and other details – see overleaf.

Modern day mystic, Episcopal priest, writer, and internationally known retreat leader, Cynthia Bourgeault divides her time between solitude at her hermitage in Maine, U.S.A., and travelling globally to spread the recovery of the Christian contemplative and wisdom path.

In her talk Cynthia will explore the persistent intuition of the Wisdom tradition that there is such a thing as “a conscious circle of humanity” from which we may receive guidance – and how contemplative practice prepares us to awaken to it.

To book, or for more information, email bristol@christianmeditation.org.uk or call Roger Layet on 01275 463727.

There will be a basket at the door for donations – we suggest £10 if you can.
