Meditation: a simple, spiritual practice

The purpose of The School of Contemplative Life is to teach meditation as a pathway to peace, community and oneness.

Meditation (also known as silent prayer) is the spiritual art of turning to the Sacred within. The simple, universal practice helps liberate us from the resistances and self-orientated habits that veil the Sacred within each of us and all creation.

We teach meditation in the Christian tradition in a way that is accessible to people of any faith or none. The wisdom and healing of this ancient practice is available to all.

“The School of Contemplative Life will surely rate among the most significant responses to the spiritual longings of the people of this nation and abroad.”

Fr. Martin Laird OSA

The School of Contemplative Life will provide an opportunity for Christians of all traditions to discover new openings for growth in contemplative maturity.” 

Rev’d Dr. Rowan Williams
