Kia ora from Contemplative Network Aotearoa
Based in Aotearoa - New Zealand, we are a network of seekers who found our way to the Christian contemplative path - a jewel of that tradition - yet one many of us were not introduced to.
Mystics and teachers have guided humanity in contemplative head, heart, and body practices for millennia. We walk a path modelled by Jesus-the-Christ, while deepening into the truth of the Universal Christ that is more expansive than any one religion... paths all leading to the source of all...the Divine overflowing within and around us.
The Network supports ‘wayfarers’ individually and collectively via this website by organising and facilitating retreats and wisdom schools, inviting teachers in person or via webinars, offering individual spiritual companioning, offering an at home nine month programme, advertising regional events, and responding to queries as asked.
Stay up to date with the latest in Contemplative practices through our news articles and regular newsletter.
Events are hosted throughout the country by our various members, from weekly gatherings to live-in retreats.
Various groups affiliated with the Contemplative Network Aotearoa meet regularly across the country. Find a group in your area today.
