New Monasticisms Ireland committee with Padraig O’ Tuama at Emmaus for our day entitled ‘A spirituality of Interruption’ on the 25th January 2020
From the outset, Padraig engaged us with the nature of interruption and the need for a certain disposition of the heart.
He drew our attention to three episodes in Scripture. This was followed by an in-depth exploration of language and meaning and the subtle connections with how we go about our daily lives.
Padraig is a great communicator and we were privileged to be lead to new understanding and insights. Our day was rounded off with some of his poetry.
We are not in a position to host events in the normal way because of Covid 19. We hope to find new ways and adapt to these changing times.
The Principles of New Monasticisms urges us to consider
Spiritual wisdom enriching society.
Wisdom is a gift and is sought in study and reflection. The company of those who share the spiritual journey is valued. Tradition is a storehouse of wisdom.
We generally run three teaching events or conferences
during the year. We endeavour to bring the best speakers on contemporary topics with a particular emphasis on spirituality and the search for meaning. Irish Christianity informs our movement but we are open to the wisdom that other faiths inspire.
Being informed and inspired is important to us. We run two book clubs. Sophia Book Club in The Lantern Centre Dublin 8. and Cill Dara Book Club which meets in Solas Bhride, Tully Road, Kildare. Check in to our About page for details about each of our clubs. This page will tell you about what we are reading and will also give you information about times and dates. All are welcome to join!
