Aspects of the Spiritual Life


David Wood is a retired Anglican priest. Most of his life, he lived and worked amongst declining industrial communities in Northern England. He organised and led prayer workshops, retreats and vigils of prayer, always exploring silence and solitude. When he met John Main’s teaching in 1988, after searching wilderness years, he simply knew he was ‘home’. With his wife Sheila he then worked to build up the Christian Meditation Community in Cumbria.

“These introductions to meditation,” he writes, “are like aspects of the spiritual life and mystery I want to reveal more for myself, knowing that it is the same for many people I meet. We need to bring all things into our silence and let it work.”
