at St Ethelburger's centre for Reconciliation and Peace
An evening of Devotional Music in a beautifully restored tiny church, tucked between soaring city offices, a stones throw from Liverpool St Station
A special treat to mark the end of London Cello week . . .
"Inspired and soulful virtuoso guitarist and singer/songwriter Rainer Scheurenbrand is joined by world-renowned cellist Matthew Barley for an evening of devotional music - music that builds a bridge to the invisible world of spirit. Rainer's songs and Matthew's cello create a magical atmosphere to inspire the heart and soul."
St Ethelburger's is one of the city's hidden gems. Rebuilt after destruction by the IRA's Bishopsgate bomb in 1993, the Centre is a fascinating hybrid of ancient and modern, an oasis of peace nestling between the high rise towers, with a well tended courtyard garden that holds a large round Saudi tent.
We'll meet in the tent for a brief welcome and guided meditation - led by Allegra Taylor - before moving through to the concert. Afterwards the building and gardens will stay open & we'll be running a small bar.
19:15 Meditation in the Saudi Tent
19:30 Take our seats inside the main building
21:30 Drinks and low temperature tunes from Ben the Bee
"Unbroken receptivity to the truth - not mindless adoration, not abdication of your responsibility to yourself, nor undiscriminating following of another's personality or whim - Real devotion is rooted in an awed and reverent gratitude - lucid, grounded and intelligent" - Sogyal Rinpoche
What a great pleasure to be able to bring you something so profoundly beautiful in such an intimate and inspiring setting xxx
