BONNEVAUX

Bonnevaux: an example of teamwork mixing energy and generosity

 There is a professional and energetic team dedicated to realising our vision for Bonnevaux. Central to it are the architects who met in London recently to take us to the next level of detail. DP Architects in Singapore, an internationally renowned firm (who have meditation daily at their head office), under their CEO, Angelene Chan, are giving their services freely to the community. Mathieu Meur, Frven Lim and Kailas Moorthy are all part of the team working on the renovation schedule. Jeff Seeck, a German meditator and engineer, has given his skills on the team as Project Manager – just who we needed at the right time! We see all this generously donated talent as a sign of the presence of the Spirit in Bonnevaux.

We will complete the sale during the summer. We intend to start work on the community house, guest house and conference centre in the Fall. Some national groups and many individuals are planning to visit next year, so we want to be ready to receive you. Our core community (drawn from several countries and languages) is meeting next month near Bonnevaux, at the ancient Benedictine monastery of Liguge, to spend time in prayer and reflection together.

Thank you all for your very generous support – for the time, talent and treasure so many are giving. We have now reached the purchase price goal. We are more than half way towards the goal of Phase One.

If you haven’t contributed yet please do so. However modest the amount it counts. It also greatly encourages our whole team working on behalf of the community to make Bonnevaux a stable centre of peace and for peace in our uncertain world.

harrisPAUL HARRIS (Patron of the WCCM)
John Main once said that: ” Meditation creates community”. By this he indicated not only the personal union with others in the depths of our own being, but as well the uniting of contemplative spiritual practice to small communities in the world at large. We see this in the ancient Israelites who formed 12 small family units; the first Christians met in homes for support and encouragement; spiritual seekers gathered in monasteries to foster love and friendship: currently Christian Meditators meet for support in weekly groups worldwide.
Bonnevaux can further encourage this universal yearning for community by deepening the contemplative spiritual roots of a new generation in a Benedictine style community. I wholeheartedly approve of this Bonnevaux initiative.
