May His peace be with you
The primary purpose of this website is to provide you with the most up-to-date information regarding the John Main Christian Meditation groups that meet each week in New York City, New York; San Francisco, California; and Mystic, Connecticut. These groups follow the teachings of John Main O.S.B. as carried forth by the World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM). We also offer many Christian Meditation books, CDs, and other items for those of you looking for more information about this wonderful, quiet way of Christian prayer. You'll find Christian Meditation material by John Main O.S.B., Laurence Freeman O.S.B., and others in our shop.
The essence of Christian Meditation is learning to stand back and to allow God to come into the forefront of your life, to take that step away from self-centeredness to God-centeredness. The result is that we find our own place in the world, our relationships in the right order - our relationships with one another, our relationship with creation, and our relationship with God.
-- John Main O.S.B.
