Abrahamic Council meditation day postponed

UPDATE: Due to the Muslim community’s contributing leader being heavily involved in supporting victims of the Christchurch massacre, this event has been postponed.  It will be held later in the year.


From the organisers:

Come and join us for a time of silent prayer together, sharing the practice and insights into this form of spirituality from our three traditions within the Abrahamic religious family.

During our time together there will be three periods of silent prayer. Each of these will be introduced by a talk about the contribution of meditative prayer within their tradition. Following each time of silent prayer there will be the opportunity for questions and sharing about the significance of meditative practice within our communities.

Rabbi JoEllen Duckor from Temple Sinai, Rehanna Ali from the Islamic community and Nick Polaschek from the Catholic Christian tradition will lead the three sessions.

Please bring a vegetarian plate for a shared lunch. Free tea/coffee available.

A koha of $5-10 to help cover costs would be appreciated.

Pā Maria is on a back section, drive to door for drop-off, but parking only in nearby streets, easy access within the building.

Chairs provided, if you meditate sitting on a cushion please bring your own.

You can download a flyer for this event if you’d like to help publicise it.
