The Australian Christian Meditation Community is offering these introductory workshops to help participants discover an ancient approach to silent contemplative prayer - which has its roots in the "desert" tradition of the early Christian centuries as well as in Jesus’ principles of prayer outlined in Matthew’s Gospel.

The ACMC is part of an inclusive, grassroots world community, established in London in the 1970s to promote silent meditation through weekly groups, workshops, retreats, seminars and newsletters, and meeting in homes, parishes, schools, offices, hospitals, prisons and universities. It supports 500 groups in Australia, including long-running groups in Romsey, Woodend, Kyneton, Gisborne and Kilmore. The introductory workshops will be conducted by Stephen Holgate, a former ACK teacher and former national coordinator of the ACMC, on Wednesdays 12, 19 and 26 October, 6-7pm in the Norma Richardson Hall, 15 Buckland St. Woodend.
