World Community for Christian Meditation

I am very happy to welcome you to the Malaysian Christian Meditation website. I hope your visit will enrich your spiritual search and help you deepen your prayer life and union with Christ. In a time of crisis such as the world is passing through it is vital that there are men and women of a deep interiority and felt peace in all traditions.

Meditation is a universal way of peace. Malaysia holds a special place in The World Community for Christian Meditation because it was there that John Main’s own journey to God took a decisive turn when he was introduced to meditation. This led him in time to rediscover the Christian tradition that it is our work to share today. The essence of this teaching is pure simplicity – but there is a rich and wonderful tradition and many spiritual fruits associated with it.

We welcome you to explore these during your visit. You can find further resources on our main website wccm.org. We would also like to help you to connect with others in the many small groups in Malaysia and around the world who are making this inner journey to God’s indwelling presence a daily practice

With much love

25th anniversary message from Fr. Laurence

All anniversaries remind us of the gift of life and give us a chance to celebrate it. I am delighted we can all now celebrate the 25th anniversary of WCCM Malaysia. It reminds us too of the special role Malaysia played in the life of John Main and so the special place it has in the affections of the World Community. I have loved visiting Malaysia over the years, seeing the growth of the seed of contemplation in a spirit of ecumenism and interfaith friendship. May the lord be praised and may he continue to bless the Malaysian meditators in our community who will be passing on the gift to future generations.

With much love
Laurence Freeman OSB

Welcome to the World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM) in Malaysia. The WCCM is an international organisation of practitioners of a meditation method rooted in Christian monastic tradition. This tradition dates back to the Desert Fathers in the 4th Century but was lost somewhere along the way. It was rediscovered by Fr. John Main (1926 – 1982) who re-introduced it to the modern world.

The WCCM was formed in 1991 as a means of continuing John Main’s legacy by spreading the practice and principles of Christian Meditation. Directed by Main’s successor, Fr. Laurence Freeman, O.S.B, the World Community has its headquarters at the International Centre in London and is served by a network of meditation centers throughout the world. This is the website for the Malaysian chapter of the WCCM and we contribute to the mission mainly by sharing this gift with others through Introductory workshops followed by the formation of weekly groups around Malaysia.

We welcome people of all faiths to join us and discover a deepening of your spiritual life.
