Brother Richard : Here and Now

Topics covered : Meditation, fears, regrets, acceptance, death, present moment awareness, compassion.

Brother Richard Hendrick has been a priest-friar for over 20 years and during the Covid 19 pandemic he wrote a poem called ‘Lockdown’ which went viral.

In this conversation he gives us a fascinating insight into the life of a monk, he explains the difference between having purpose in life and finding meaning, he speaks of Celtic spirituality, the power of apologising…and death, in the most beautiful way.

It’s an episode that will make you reflect on your own life and hopefully enrich it, as it has for me.
