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.
