This year’s online JMS will be an overview of the life and development of the Community since it was named at New Harmony in 1991. The real founding had begun long before this in the personal journey of John Main. And it is an ongoing process: a community now present in more than a hundred countries and in 67 National Communities.
We will hear testimonies and personal experiences of meditators who form a generational bridge covering these years. As we better understand ourselves shaped by the Spirit we also see how it empowers us to plant seeds of contemplation in our troubled world.
Our multi-cultural celebration will be both joyful and reflective, looking back so that we can look forward. It will spotlight the teaching gifts of younger meditators and celebrate the ripening commitment of WCCM teachers who have taught among us or years. This collaboration of the generations will show how the essential teaching of the WCCM has opened new channels between the community and the world and continues to do so.
The day will be a rich mosaic including a teaching by Fr Laurence on the ‘WCCM and the New Christianity’, short talks by the upcoming generation of teachers, meeting with meditation groups from around the world in small groups, a video on the history of WCCM, celebrations in art, music, poetry – and, of course, meditation together.
And you! We look forward to your company and contribution as we celebrate this special milestone!
This is an online event. The recording of the event will be available asap for those who can’t join us live.
There will be a simultaneous translation in Spanish.
