Mindfulness with Revd Tim Stead

Mindfulness has become very popular these days as a means of managing stress, coping with depression and engaging with life more creatively. The simple but varied meditation practices have a lot in common with some of the great contemplative traditions but have also benefited from the input of contemporary science.

This day will be a day of practice, reflection and discussion about how mindfulness can not only support stress management and self-care (two things clergy can be notoriously bad at) but also, if we choose, support our spiritual lives. All the meditations will be guided by the retreat leader and each part of the day will be carefully guided, whether practising, reflecting or discussing.

Participants are invited to come with an open mind, ready to explore the enormous possibilities which mindfulness may have to contribute to Christian spirituality.

The Revd Tim Stead is , Vicar of Holy Trinity, Headington Quarry, Oxford, an accredited mindfulness teacher and author of ‘Mindfulness and Christian Spirituality’ SPCK 2106.
