Weekly Online Healing Meditation for Coronavirus

All are warmly invited to meet heart centre to heart centre  in an online meditation to pray for all those impacted by COVID-19, to be together in solidarity as we walk as spiritual directors and friends with so many who are suffering and to stabilise and activate communal consciousness.  

If you would like to deepen the meditations between our online gatherings, previous meditations are available below.

Communion Consciousness Meditation

Arise, shine out, for your light has come,
the glory of the Divine is rising in you.
– Isaiah 60:1-2

From within the tranquility and stillness of our hearts, we will respond to the Spirit’s urging to arise,  shine out and awaken the light of communion consciousness as we continue to stabilise growing global awareness of our interconnectedness and interrelatedness, including with our fragile sacred earth now breathing as our frenetic movement slows.  

Over four weeks, we will embrace the thin space and inspiration created by a number of important celebrations in late May and June – Pentecost, Trinity Sunday, Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary.    Over 60 minutes, in Contemplatio written by Kerrie Hide, we will gently be guided by the intimate exchange of love in the mystical heart, where we will lovingly and tenderly stabilise communion consciousness, see from within Oneness and dare to imagine a future where truly the glory of the Divine is rising within each one of us and in our communal heart at this most important evolutionary moment.  

All are warmly welcome

Fridays at 4pm AEST  –  29 May, 5 June, 12 June and 19 June

Before joining the meeting, we encourage you to create a prayerful space in the room from which you will be joining the meditation, lighting a candle or incense if possible.   Please arrive in silence with your microphone turned off.

We would love as many as possible to join us in this communal healing space. Please feel free to share this information.
