Christian Meditation Ireland


Welcome to our website. We hope you find it informative and useful. It aims to give you a brief outline of meditation from within the Christian tradition and keep you up to date on the activities of Christian Meditation Ireland.

Who are we

We are men and women from all walks of life who come together to share and express a desire for deeper meaning in our lives through meditating together. Throughout Ireland there are groups which meet to meditate weekly in homes, parishes, offices, hospitals, prisons, schools and colleges, in a spirit of openness and sharing with all. We welcome those of all Christian traditions, of other religious traditions and of none.
The governing body of the community is Christian Meditation Ireland Ltd, a not-for-profit company with charitable status, with a voluntary board of directors and no paid employees. Our aim is to animate and support the practice of Christian meditation in Ireland by communicating and nurturing the teaching and practice of the tradition. [Company Registration No.: 530525 Registered Charity No.: 20082349]. The Memorandum and Articles of Association may be downloaded here. The Covenant with WCCM may be downloaded here.

The School of Meditation (WCCM)

Perhaps the simplest way to learn about Christian Meditation is to join a group near where you live. However, that is not always possible. The World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM) has an online School of Meditation which gives paid access to a number of online courses that may be helpful to those who are seeking information on Christian meditation or who want to deepen their knowledge and practice and who, for one reason or another, are unable to attend a weekly group.

An Irish Newsletter will appear quarterly, primarily in digital form and will be emailed out to group leaders who can print copies for their groups or share the link as it is downloadable from the Irish Newsletter page. Those who specifically want a printed copy can contact Theresa Hobbs in the CMI secretariat (086-1621803; email to have it posted for a small fee.
