In This Quiet Place

Iona Abbey window

Now that Easter is over I have a little more time for quiet reflection. I am also starting to get ready for our annual retreat – this years theme Shalom and the Reconciliation of God. With the Irish monk Columba to guide us we will walk together through scripture, reflection, worship, and creative spiritual exercises, stirring our imaginations and opening our hearts and minds to the reconciling power of God.

In preparation, I have been going back through some of my early meditation videos and thought that you might appreciate this one which I produced back in 2007. I love the meditative nature of Jeff Johnson’s music which I often use as background music. Most of the photos were taken during a visit to the island of Iona in 2007.

I have not put together meditation videos like this (except for the Advent ones) for quitea while – should I do more?

As Christian poets and writers, Christine, we often talk about the importance of getting quiet and spending time with God before we start to write. Your meditation video helped me to do that. Thanks. I’ll highlight this on the Christian Poets & Writers blog – – since some members of our FB group don’t really know what meditation is or how to go about it. God bless.

Thanks Mary – I am glad that it helped you. I had not looked at it for some time and found it very helpful too – wanted to redo the lettering so that it was smaller and quieter though so a new version might appear one of these days.

Thank you Christine for this gentle meditation. I agree with you about the lettering, smaller would be better so that we can see the whole picture.Yes, do more of these!
