WCCM Theme for 2023
Metanoia - let your minds be remade
In this online series on the WCCM’s theme for 2023, an international group of contemplatively oriented leaders, thinkers and activists bring wide-ranging perspectives to focus on how we can change our mind. With insights from religion, science, politics, economics and technology, this series will be a year-long discovery of hope and fresh insights into our future. Discussion groups will meet between the monthly online talks to allow participants to share their insights with others.
Our events offer many opportunities to learn to meditate and to integrate the practice into daily life, to deepen its fruits in the service of others, to share the experience of meditation inclusively, coming to self-knowledge in the discovery of our interconnectedness

Advent Reflections 2022 by Laurence Freeman
Second Sunday of Advent
One of my favourite saints is the ‘God-bearing and holy Father Maximos the hut-burner’. He was not, as you might think, a mystical arsonist as he only burned his own huts, which he also built, whenever he moved to another place.

Bonnevaux centre for Peace
The international home of a monastery without walls, Bonnevaux is developing on the site of a 12th century Abbey energised by centuries of contemplative silence in the humane spirit of St Benedict. A resident community lives here in the spirit of Benedictine wisdom following a daily rhythm of life, balancing daily times of prayer, work and study. Hospitality for guests, retreats and conferences share the peace of Bonnevaux with many so they can transmit it to others.
We are growing as a community of meditators in more than 100 countries, committed to developing a contemplative Christian life for our time and to dialogue between religion, science, business and art, body and mind. At the heart of this community is the meeting of many weekly groups, both physically and online, which introduce the essential teaching of meditation and help to deepen the inner journey. Personal transformation leads then to social and global transformation.
