Meditation at St Antony's Priory

2nd Saturday of the Month, 10.30am-12noon

This is a simple meditation session, suitable for beginners as well as those with more experience who might want to refresh their practice. The sessions comprise a short introduction, two periods of meditation, and time for sharing and questions.

There is no need to book, and payment is by donation – but please do arrive on time as it will not be possible to join the session after it has begun.
Refreshments will be available from 10am, and participants are also very welcome to stay on for a chat after the session as well.

The Fellowship of Silence

It is an aspiration to build a sustainable meditation group, open to all who wish to practice together, which will be called ‘The Fellowship of Silence’. It would be great if this could become a weekly activity, though that would depend on people being able and willing to make it happen.

The name comes from a book by Revd Cyril Hepher, sometime vicar of the Church of St John the Baptist, Newcastle (1906-13), who started a silent prayer meeting in the church over a hundred years ago. Click here to read more about this story. 

Durham University Meditation Society

The University Meditation Society meet at the Priory every Wednesday, 1.15-2.15pm, during term time. Sessions are led by members of the Priory team and by the students themselves. There is a Facebook group (private) here.
