Extra-ordinary Times: The Healing Journey of Meditation (ENGLISH)

Hazel Bradley and Fr Laurence Freeman OSB

Hazel Bradley has been 42 years in L’Arche, starting in Trosly, then in India and now in the UK. Former Zone Coordinator for Asia West Pacific, community leader in India, then International Events Coordinator. She is an Ignatian spiritual director and storyteller.

Fr Laurence Freeman OSB is an English Benedictine monk who worked closely with Fr John Main OSB establishing a Benedictine community of monks and laypeople dedicated to the practice and teaching of Christian meditation. Today he is the Director of the World Community for Christian Meditation (wccm.org) and of its Benedictine oblate community.


We are living today in extra-ordinary times. The last two years have seen great changes in the ways we live and interact with each other and we have realized the great vulnerability of our global human community. Meditation is a journey to center oneself and find rest – to come in contact with our inner self and to encounter within us a presence that transcends us and that can lead us to silence, inner peace and healing. 

Our five-day meditation retreat invites you to make this interior journey and, at the same time, to be connected in prayer with others around the globe in these extra-ordinary times …
