The Contemplative Toolkit is a new resource from the Diocese of Oxford. It is relevant for people of all faiths and worldviews, offering five contemplative practices to help us to embrace some of the ancient wisdom of the Christian tradition. It is also designed to assist us in navigating the world around us. Contemplation and ‘mindfulness’ have much to offer at this time. These afternoon sessions will bring five contemplative practices into your life. You can also access similar sessions as recordings on St Mary’s Church Banbury YouTube page.
7th September: Sessions 1a and 1b - Introduction and Slowing Down
5th October: Sessions 2 and 3 – Noticing and Dwelling
12th October: Sessions 4 and 5 – Mending and Blessing
There will be refreshments provided on each afternoon, and the opportunity for you to walk around the church or to enjoy quiet conversation. We hope you will feel peaceful and refreshed as you leave at the end of each afternoon.
