at the london mind body spirit festival there was a new meditation space. each hour thropugh the day someone would lead meditation. unlike the workshops which cost a lot of money this was free. we were delighted when we (dekhomai) were invited by festival organisers to lead one of the meditation slots for the festival. jenny was on the stand at that time and agreed to lead it.
the room was full (about 30 people) and she led them through an ignatian meditation based on the examen. the theme for the meditation space was unity which is why it has that slant to it. the examen was one of the postcards that we had created for the festival so we were able to give everyone who attended something to takeaway so they could practice the examen at home.
jenny has added the text of the examen meditation to the dekhomai site and i am adding it as a worship trick. there is already one examen as a worship trick but that is an examen reflecting on the previous year.
it went really well. fantastic to be able to lead that in a space like the mind body spirit festival and trust and pray that god will be meeting people there outside of the walls of church where we tend to confine christian spirituality.
