Groups and recurring events

  • Meditation: a Christian way
    «In meditation you are learning to be. Just to be, as you are.» (John Main)
    Meditation is an ancient form of contemplative prayer that seeks God in the silence and stillness beyond word or thought. A new group will be meeting to explore the ancient tradition and contemporary practice of Christian meditation. We would like to invite you to come along. All are welcome: whether new to meditation, or an experienced practitioner, we are always beginning.  The group will meet once a month, for an hour, and include a teaching from the World Community for Christian Meditation, and a period of silence for meditation.  The Reformed Church, Zug, is kindly hosting us in the mediation room. The meetings will be held in English (but the silence is universal)
    When: 5:30pm – 6:30pm,  2nd Wednesday of each month, starting 8th May 2019.
    Where: Meditation Room, Reformed Church Zug.
