Six weekly sessions of Introductory Christian Meditation, conducted under the auspices of the World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM), were held at St Ignatius Church (SIC) from August 20 to September 24.

Held every Tuesday at the Costantini Centre from 8.15pm to 9.45pm, the sessions were well-attended with 90 registered participants.

The sessions touched on various aspects of meditation and how it enhances the growth of prayer life. Fr Paul Cheong OFMCap highlighted aspects integrating Body, Mind and Spirit in the practice of meditation of stillness, silence and simplicity when dwelling in God’s presence.

Fr Gerard Theraviam (Parish Priest, Church of Divine Mercy) led the participants to understand how to leave themselves behind in meditation and to move from thinking about God to simply being with God.

Miss Niloufer Harben then took participants through the roots of meditation in our Christian traditions. The general feedback from a high percentage of first-time attendees was that they benefited from understanding that Christian meditation is another form of prayer, which is the prayer of our hearts.
