Christian meditation

Meditation is not new to the Christian experience. However, many Christians have lost touch with this long tradition of contemplative prayer.

‘Be still and know I am God’  (Psalm 46:10)

It is not easy for us to ‘be still’. Another translation says, ‘Pause a while’.  Through the regular discipline of physical silence and stillness in meditation, and the simple repetition of a word – a mantra – God’s mysterious presence within us is given space to become more a reality. In time this begins to influence the shape, purpose and meaning of our ordinary life. This ‘work’ gradually frees us from the unrelenting demands of the ego and the incessant chatter of the mind. Our mind and heart are united in a way that clarifies vision and opens our heart to experience more deeply the Source of all Love that is within.

Christian Meditation is 7.30 pm to approx 8.15 pm every Tuesday (except during January). It begins with a 10 – 15 minute reflection followed by 25 minutes of silent meditation.

Siloam Centre is connected with the ACMC (Australian Christian Meditation Community).
