Cynthia will be in Bonnevaux France for a week-long residential program which begins the two year Contemplative Academy through World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM).
The Academy offers a program of inter-disciplinary study in the context of contemplative practice. It is grounded in the Christian contemplative tradition, particularly as passed on through John Main and Laurence Freeman and the worldwide body of teachers of the WCCM. It is inspired by meditation as a universal and unifying source of wisdom and it believes this wisdom can be enacted and applied across all of human life-experience and society. The Academy is based on ecumenical, interfaith and inclusive values. We believe that contemplation generates peace and wisdom which are the necessary foundations for justice.
Multilocal within a global spiritual family, the Academy operates both online and with in-person events at Bonnevaux, the WCCM spiritual home.
The two-year program is presented through six trimesters (eight weeks each), starting April 2023 and ending March 2o25.
