Location

The Meditatio Centre & ONLINE

All over the world, people are drawn to holy places, some natural, like mountain tops, springs, caves and ancient trees; some human-made like temples, cathedrals, churches and shrines.  The power of these places in part depends on a kind of memory of people’s experience there in the past.  They are also often places that literally connect heaven and earth and many are the focus of pilgrimage. 

Rupert Sheldrake will discuss the power of these places and how they can help us on our spiritual journey.

We hope that this event will be in person at the Centre in London. it will also be live streamed via zoom for those who are not able to travel yet.
A recording will be available afterwards to all those who register.
