Circles of Stillness

Thoughts on Contemplative Prayer from the Julian Meetings

by Hilary Wakeman


Price: £10.95
Publisher:DLT (Darton, Longman and Todd Ltd)
Published:15 April 2002
‘Julian Meetings’ are small groups of people who meet regularly to practise contemplative prayer or Christian meditation. Many have found themselves growing in the silence into a deeper experience of God. A previous anthology of pieces from these meetings was Circles of Silence edited by Robert Llewellyn, who is one of the contributors to this collection, together with Basil Hume, Angela Ashwin, Eddie Askew, Jim Cotter, Margaret Silf, Wanda Nash and others. The list will be recommendation enough for anyone with interest or experience in contemplative spirituality, and the contributions are very various: meditations, prayers, poems, stories, not only from clergy and professional writers but people of all walks in life, and all denominations or none.
