Sustaining a discipline of silence based prayer is not always easy.
The reading group offers several ways to support you in this:
- Meet regularly with others who are also exploring a discipline of silence based prayer to share experiences of what it's like: the struggles and the joys, your questions and discoveries!
- Experiencing periods of sustained silence with others is often a supportive and helpful thing to do. So after a time of discussing the latest chapters, there will be a minimum of 20 minutes of shared silence together.
- Our shared silence will be followed by time to reflect and chat about how our reading and discussion have impacted on this practice: what was useful, what we noticed, what got in the way or was hard.
We will be meeting every 6 to 8 weeks at 7.30pm in someone's home in the BD2 area of Bradford. We will finish by 9.30pm at the latest.
