Contemplative Practice

Breathing Space events hope to uncover a spacious stillness at the heart of activity and to nurture a way of being in the world that respects our natural rhythms and those woven throughout creation; patterns of activity and rest, of fallow and fruit, of ebbing and flowing, of night and day, the inner and the outer, the light and the dark. We celebrate the different seasons in all their rich complexity.

Time spent in contact with the natural world, in solitude and silence in prayer and meditation are ways which help to nurture a contemplative life. To practice contemplation is to find ways to resist the pressure to conform and perform, to be driven and forever producing, and to take steps in favour of a more deeply embodied, integrated life.
