A reflection on wilderness places, and meditative prayer

As we follow the journey to the cross, Jesus has left the wilderness. But for many people, the wilderness place in their lives continues.
Here is a reflection, meditation and Bible Study facilitated by CMHI and NBSI exploring the theme of wilderness, with some interesting findings!

Lydia says: It’s 1 hour and 20 minutes long, but I would encourage you to carve out some time to listen and rest and wonder about God’s love and provision in the wilderness places.

Under the Tree is back – March 22nd at lunchtime!

We are thrilled to let you know that Under the Tree is back, for one day only!

Join us on Friday 22nd for a lunchtime pause to reconnect with nature, self, others and God, who holds it all together in His hands.

Location: The old orchard & the chapel, 96 Rathmines Road Upper, D06 Y684 Dublin 6

At Under the Tree we come together to nourish body, mind, soul & relationship. We take an intentional pause to eat, to rest, to notice the beauty of nature, to laugh, to wonder and to remember the gift of our breath and of the present moment. In this pause, we learn more about who we are and whose we are.

The session takes place outdoors in a garden space and includes mindful and meditative practices to support us to be in the moment and and an interactive Bible study that creates a safe space to wonder about who God is and who we are in His eyes.

The sessions are facilitated by Dr Julie McKinley of the National Bible Society of Ireland and Lydia Monds of the Ministry of Healing: Ireland.
