Our Beginnings Of Our Organisation

Christian meditation groups, based on John Main’s teachings, have been meeting regularly throughout the North West of England, for over 30 years. John Cotling, who had been inspired by the teachings, was encouraged by John Main to start up a group, for people interested in this type of meditation. The first meeting was in Manchester, in 1977. Since then, many other groups have been formed and meet regularly throughout the region.


In 2000, ‘Christian Meditation of John Main’, was formed. This is a Charity registered in England (number: 1081471), for the purpose of sharing John Main’s teachings about Christian meditation.


The Charity has links to ‘The World Community for Christian Mediation’, based in London. Their website is:
