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.

There is no separation between humans and God because of mutual indwelling which expresses the reality of divine love. We flow into God – and God flows into us – because it is the nature of love to flow. The whole and the part live together in mutual, loving reciprocity, each belonging to the other and dependent on the other to show forth the fullness of love, which Jesus called, the kingdom of God,
