Awake to God

During this study weekend Canon Melvyn Matthews, previously Chancellor of Wells Cathedral, will present new insights into the thinking of several mystics of the Christian and Jewish traditions. Through exploring the insights of Meister Eckhart, Julian of Norwich, Thomas Traherne and Etty Hillesum he will suggest a style of being and seeing for contemporary people of faith. He believes that we can rediscover that all things are simply gifts coming from the hand of the invisible giver who is God. This realisation then enables us to live entirely freely and without fear within our conflicted society. We can forget ourselves and become truly ‘awake’.

The weekend will draw on Canon Matthews’ book ‘Awake to God’ which will be available on sale during the weekend.

Led by: Canon Melvyn Matthews

Please arrive by 6pm on Friday.  Course ends with lunch on Sunday.
