Benedictine Fr Laurence Freeman will lead a weekend meditation retreat for the Singapore chapter of The World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM).
The retreat will be held at Catholic Junior College on March 12 and 13 from 9am-5pm daily. The retreat is open to all.
The theme for the retreat is Milestones, Stages of Life in the Light of Meditation.
Mr Peter Ng Kok Song, president of WCCM Singapore, explained that the theme Milestones refers to the stages of life from childhood to adolescence, adulthood, old age and eventually death.
“Meditation, as a form of prayer, helps us to experience these stages of life as also stages of maturing in Christian faith,’’ Mr Ng said. “We come from God and the goal of our life is union with God.”
Fr Laurence last led a meditation retreat in Singapore in November 2014 themed The Eight Big Problems of Life which attracted over 500 participants.
While in Singapore in March and April, Fr Laurence will also be teaching a course on Meditation and Leadership for MBA students at Singapore Management University. He will also conduct a workshop at Nanyang Business School.
Fr Laurence will also be sharing his experience with healthcare practitioners in a public lecture on Contemplative Healthcare hosted by Sengkang Health.
Registration for the Milestones retreat is now open. For more information and to sign up, visit www.gevme.com/milestones. Registration ends on Feb 28.
