London: Poetry Workshop on Gerard Manley Hopkins
Comment Email Print
 

A day exploring selected poems of Gerard Manley Hopkins, led by Graeme Watson will take place at the Meditatio Centre in Islington on Saturday, 22 October. Hopkins' poems describe God's world in dynamic images and rhythms. Stretching language almost to breaking point, the poet invites the reader to observe the natural world more closely , to look inward into the human mind and heart, and then to take the final step of entering into the stillness and silence of contemplative prayer.

Graeme is an Anglican priest and a meditator within the World Community for Christian Meditation. He co-leads a meditation group in his local church. A spiritual director and leader of retreats, he is the author of Strike the Cloud: Understanding and Practising the Teaching of the Cloud of Unknowing (SPCK 2011), and The Song of Songs: a Contemplative Guide (SPCK 2014).

The Meditatio Centre is at St Mark's, Myddelton Sq London EC1R 1XX
