Tai Chi Movement and Christian Meditation

Terry Doyle & Fr Christopher Gorst OSB
Standard accommodation: £154.00 En-suite accommodation: £163.00

Tai Chi has been described as ‘meditation in movement’. Christian Meditation involves stillness. During this retreat we balance these paradoxical practices to help focus our body and mind on being open to God. Under Terry Doyle, a practitioner of Tai Chi and an Oblate of the World Community of Christian Meditation (WCCM) we will be guided in our learning and develop these means, by which we relax and become aware of God’s presence. No previous experience is required, but those who have been before are most welcome to renew their practise and re-connect.
