Father Bede Griffiths was one of the great spiritual leaders of the 20th century, and a charismatic man who emanated unconditional love.

The Bede Griffiths Sangha (the Sanskrit word for community) is an informal network of people who have been touched and inspired by his life and teachings.

“The hope of humanity today is to get beyond the experience of duality”  Father Bede Griffiths

Experience has shown us that we can meet, mediate together and have prayer times together on Zoom1in a meaningful way, generating an experience of oneness in the stillness, evoking the same shared sense of consciousness that happens when we meet together in a physical space. This in itself can be transformative. We are therefore offering a regular Zoom session on the third Sunday of the month, from 4.30 – 6 pm, where you could come to participate in prayer, reflection and meditation in the form that you would experience on one of our retreats.

If you would like to come and join us, please email John Ryder on
