The Marriage of Wisdom and Prophesy

Religion can be divided into two categories: the wisdom traditions, such as Hinduism and Buddhism, and the prophetic traditions, such as Jewish, Christianity, Islam and Bahaism. However, each tradition has its unique blend between the prophetic and the wisdom. Br Martin, the spiritual successor of Bede Griffiths, will explore these interactions in the light of the contemporary hunger for wisdom and meaning:

“It seems to me that the future of spiritual evolutions is the marriage of these two traditions.
The fruit of this marriage would bring unity and peace to the world in new ways.”
John Martin Sahajananda

This retreat is both for the beginning and ongoing meditators. There will be four periods of meditation a day to accommodate your level of practice. Mornings will be in silence through breakfast and lunch, with the afternoon opening to times of rest and solitude and a convivial dinner where you can get to know your neighbour.

This event takes place at Bonnevaux and offers an opportunity to discover the rich cultural and historical French and European heritage of the 12th-century Abbaye de Bonnevaux, as well as to explore the varied and natural beauty of the land which we cultivate as a model of ecological responsibility.
