ABOUT THE SERIES:

 

Recovering for Wholeness for Full Human Being

Monthly seminar 

Jan – Nov 2021, the WCCM Year of Health

We live in the golden age of medicine. Breakthroughs, cures and life-expectancy have all flourished with medical science. The present Covid-19 pandemic shows the value and necessity of this dimension of medicine. Yet, never before has health been such a highly charged, confused and conflicted issue for both individuals, the medical profession and society at large. It seems, to many medical practitioners and to patients themselves, that we have gained so much but, at times, neglected something essential: our capacity for deep and transformative healing.

Dr Barry White is well-known for his innovative, clear and deep insights into one of the key challenges of contemporary healthcare: what does health mean and how do we continue curing without losing the central importance of healing? He has introduced many clinicians to the practice of meditation and has led a clinical trial demonstrating the wider health benefits of meditation.

For a long time, he and Laurence Freeman have collaborated in this field. In the monthly online seminars beginning in January 2021, they will present complementary approaches to understanding what it means to be healthy – seeking to integrate the medical and spiritual dimensions.

This series of WCCM seminars proposes a contemplative recovery of the meaning of health and healthy living. It is as suitable for those interested in starting a contemplative practice as for those who have been meditating for years.  

It is hoped to hold a retreat at Bonnevaux as soon as possible after the Seminar in late 2021.
