The Rev. Canon Mary Haddad will lead us in an exploration of the practice of meditation and its relationship to contemplation and prayer. For several years at the American Cathedral in Paris, Canon Haddad has been overseeing the creation of a meditation community, a community dedicated to the practices that bring together the body, mind and spirit. She leads weekly meditation sessions and has developed a Sunday evening alternative Meditation Mass around poetry, the gospel and extended periods of silence.
Addressing the simplest question, What is meditation?, the retreat will allow for lots of informal conversation around this subject and include times for the participants to practise silence/meditation together.
