ELIZABETH CARDONE (Former Director of the John Main Center, Georgetown University, Washington DC)
The establishment of Bonnevaux is an especially wonderful stage of development for the World Community for Christian Meditation. Several years ago, I had the privilege of being part of the Meditatio House WCCM community in London. That experience of daily meditation, rooted in a loving community, has had a lasting effect on my life. No doubt Bonnevaux will provide a center and a foundation to nurture the spiritual lives of many in future generations. Our world is in need not only of deep prayer, but of individuals and communities who share the fruits of that experience. I see every day and first-hand the powerful effect of rooting the daily practice of meditation in a physical space. Bonnevaux will be a great gift and blessing to the WCCM and to the wider world. It will be a global center and a local home for those seeking to deepen their practice and experience the richness of community life. Centers of contemplation such as these have the power to truly change and bless our world. I look forward to the fruition of the Bonnevaux project!
If you have any questions about how to support Bonnevaux please do not hesitate to contact us.
