The second session of Unified Consciousness series

Date

Feb 15 2022

Time

French time
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Location

Online

Conducted via Zoom or live-stream.

Dr Williams, former Professor of Divinity at Oxford University and Archbishop of Canterbury uniquely combines spiritual depth, wisdom and great learning. He has been close to the WCCM for many years and delivered the John Main Seminar, ‘Silence and Honey Cakes’, in 2001. In this talk he will describe the ways in which Christian tradition thinks about the life of the spirit as a “simplification”, drawing together the diffused strands of identity into a unified presence; and he will explore how to connect this with what we mean by a “simple life”. For meditators who see their practice as ‘simple not easy’ his insights will be especially illuminating.
