"Experiment with Light" is a simple but powerful meditation, which can be searching and transformative. It helps us to really know ourselves.  Some personal impressions about the Shrewsbury Experiment with Light meetings are here.

This is a Quaker discipline that helps people deepen their spiritual lives by trying out what it means to “wait in the Light” as early Quakers did, and still has great relevance today.

The meditation can be separated into four main steps with an invitation first to be still, then....:

1) Mind the Light (pay attention to what’s going on inside you, particularly where there’s something that makes you feel uncomfortable)

2) Open your heart to the truth (don’t run away from anything that’s difficult or that you don’t want to face, but keep a little distance from it: ‘be still and cool in thy mind’)

3) Wait in the Light (be patient, let the Light show you what is really going on, ask questions if what is being offered to you isn’t clear or you want to know more, and wait for the answers to come, don’t try to explain)

4) Submit (accept and welcome the information or images, and the insights, dreams and perceptions that may come later, and allow them to show the truth)


If you would like to find out more have a look at the website http://www.experiment-with-light.org.uk where you will find plenty of information.
