““Meditation is the prayer of the heart, what the early Christian monks called pure prayer… Many people speak about meditation as a feeling of coming home.” – Father Laurence Freeman

In this interview, Father Laurence explores the potential of meditation to nurture and heal communities and relationships, to re-awaken our sense of wonder and help us journey from our minds to our hearts.
