_ Contemplative Space

The Contemplative Space provides times and spaces for you to explore what it means to live deeply and meaningfully — through sacred conversations and spiritual practices.

If you are seeking to live a compassionate, contemplative and creative life,  and looking for accompaniment on your spiritual journey — I invite you to engage in spiritual direction and explore the spiritual practices resource section. My hope is that this can be a place where you can nuture your spiritual life and recognise and respond to divine nudges.

What is Spiritual Direction?

Spiritual direction is a practice of companionship and accompaniment. Through conversation, prayer and contemplation it provides space to grow in your attentiveness to the Spirit and cultivate a life with God.

The practice of spiritual direction, in this context, flows out of the christian tradition — with its source found in Jesus. It is indebted to monastic spirituality,  particularly in regards to meditation, contemplation and prayer. It is also informed by contemporary thinking and charismatic movements.

Introducing Jonny

I’ve been trained in the art of spiritual direction with Sustainable Faith in Amsterdam. I live in Nottingham, UK with my wife and two teenage children. For the last two decades, I have been designer, artist and lecturer; and I have served and lead groups in a local church context. The Contemplative Space results from my enthusiasm to provide people with a space to be listened to, and to see them live out their true selves in God — growing in grace and love. Find out a little more in the ‘About’ section.
