Welcome to the home of the Contemplative Network in

Aotearoa - New Zealand

The Contemplative Network is a virtual network that supports the development and sustaining of contemplative practices within a Christian framework. We are grounded in the Wisdom tradition through Centering Prayer and we aim to be supportive and inclusive of all Christian contemplative practices. We are open to people of any denomination and none, of pew sitters and armchair mystics.

The Contemplative Network provides a point of entry for people wanting to explore meditation or contemplative prayer as a way of deepening their intimacy with God, or whatever 'term' people use for that that gives them meaning.

On our website you will find information about various groups and organisations throughout New Zealand providing guidance in meditation, contemplation, prayer of silence and opportunities for regular mediation practice in a group setting.

You will also find news and information about upcoming events and retreats to support your way and links to various local and international organisations and their resources.  We also have a library of CD and DVD resources available for groups and individuals to borrow. Please contact us for further information on any of this.

The work of the Contemplative Network is supported by the Coromandel Christian Trust.
