Based on John chapter 12 verses 34-50

Select from our 5, 10, 15 and 20 minute meditations

The sessions enable you to imagine a setting in which you encounter Jesus.  You are then given an opportunity to speak to him and then to hear him answering you.

The 5 minute version is simply an imaginative encounter.

The 10 minute version adds to this a relaxation exercise and a few moments to rest in God’s presence.

The 15 minute version adds more space in which to rest in God’s presence.

The 20 minute version adds to this an option to go back into the story and imagine who you might be, how that might feel and what God might be saying to you through the experience.
