CANCELLED; Experiment with Light,

Tuesday 7 January 13:00 until 13:30
Meeting House, Chapel
Speaker: Jason Evans

Experiment with Light is a meditation based by Rex Ambler on his study of early Quakers, particularly the writings of Quakerism's founder, George Fox.

We follow a seven-step guided meditation, with each step followed by a period of silence. In the silence your mind is free to reflect on what is important to you right now in the present moment, and lead you to a possible solution of anything that is holding you back.

The seven steps follow the insights George Fox discovered in the 17th century into the workings of the mind, and the process of turning inward to discover the essential truth about yourself. These insights have stood the test of time, informing Quaker practice ever since.

Little is assumed, beyond a willingness to be open to what the Quakers call the Light, the deepest part of us that is essentially good.

It can be thought of as a Quaker meditation for seeking divine guidance on the important questions of life, be they work or study, relationships, spiritual development, etc. Quakers believe this deep part of ourselves can show us the truth of our heart.

These sessions are a way to experience the Quaker way of silent contemplation, without any prior experience of, or commitment to Quakerism, beyond that described above.
You don't have to be a Quaker to benefit. Everyone is welcome. Come along and give yourself some mental space.
