The BBC series The Convent begins tonight on BBC 2 at 9pm. Since I'm at college, my husband will be recording it for me and I look forward to watching it on the weekend.
If this series is anywhere near as good as The Monastery, it will be well worth watching. (I missed the recent show, 'The Monastery Revisited' and would appreciate hearing comments on it if anyone saw it.)
I have long thought that the traditional Christian prayer disciplines of contemplation and mediation could potentially be helpful to spiritual seekers in helping them to connect with God. I felt that 'The Monastery' validated my suspicion and it will be interesting to see if 'The Convent' validates it or not.
