The Julian Meetings

Julian of Norwich was an anchoress. It is fairly certain that she was not a nun. An anchoress was a person called to a solitary life, one that was not cut off from the world, but one anchored in it. Her life was one of prayer, contemplation and counselling. She lived in Norwich in the 14th Century and her writings have been valued ever since.

We belong to The Julian Meetings organisation, based in England but with member groups around the world.

Ringwood Julian Meeting is an ecumenical group who meet on the first Tuesday of every month, 2.15pm, at 36 College Road. We begin with a short reading, perhaps
from Julian of Norwich’s revelations; then we share silence for about half an hour in the presence of God and of each other. We surface gently with a prayer followed by a cup of tea.

If you’d like to see what it’s all about, just turn up on any “first Tuesday”. Or, to find out more, phone Anne on 01425 476327.

“In His love He clothes us, enfolds us and embraces us; that tender love completely surrounds us, never to leave us. As I saw it He is everything that is
