Experiencing the flowing spirit in nature
Tentatively launching in this neck of the woods is a new monthly group called Mid Wales Forest Church.
Here is a link to more details:
Many of us are conscious of a need for a deep spiritual and ecological shift and are experiencing that in our own lives. We hope for a move towards a regenerative participation with nature that itself is groaning for freedom from decay. Throughout the ages people have walked this path within the Christ tradition and have found a meaningful expression of their spirituality, finding inspiration and structure through the rhythms of the seasons, the characteristics of plants and animals and the sacredness of place – along with the wisdom of the scriptures and the pattern of prayers.
What we actually do and where we meet differs from month to month with three types of gathering: celebration, journey and activity. Close to the solstices and equinoxes we meet for a shared celebration and meal. For another four months we meet simply to walk or make a journey or pilgrimage with a simple liturgy or prayer pattern. And for the remaining four months we undertake a more structured activity ranging from working on a forest garden to exploring a meditation exercise or nature connection activity. We never structure more than 50% of our time to allow us room to respond to what is happening around us; to take time to pause and be present with creation.
This all starts this Sunday 14th May, get in touch following the link above or phone Bruce on 07866 109930
