CHRISTFULNESS AT THE CHINESE UNIVERSITY HONG KONG, SHATIN
Four sessions in September and October 2021. May Christfulness be a blessing to the students in the CUHK amid a trying time.
Christfulness讀音像Mindfulness，這其實是以「基督」(Christ) 和「滿全」(Fullness) 兩字組成，由丹麥神學家馬奧勒（Ole Skjerbaek Madsen）創立的一套植根聖經及神學的靈性修持。修持由個人修為開始，以與他者和世界的關係為圓滿，讓生命更新並得以完全。課堂將有系統講授，並一同以呼吸練習與靜觀默想作修習。

Other arrangements and retreats:
Sometimes we are overloaded with work, feel stress and are about to burn out. Maybe it’s time to take a pause, to relax in the presence of the Lord, and to find oneself as a loved and appreciated child of God.
There are different types of retreats also in the context of our work in Christfulness.
We hope to be able to invite you to many more retreats during 2021/22 and on in the coming years after Corona. in this waiting periode, we suggest you to look at the meditations, disciplines and tools you can find on this website.
It could also be an idea to plan for retreats with your work or church and again you can find ideas for that on the website. Please ask us if you have questions or comments.
The English word Christfulness sounds like Mindfulness – even though it is a biblical concept (Ephesians 4:13). This similarity is intentional, because we introduce Christian spirituality and understanding of human nature to people seek spiritual practices – whether secular or religious – that might improve their wellbeing in body, mind and spirit.
When we use Christfulness as a term for Christian spirituality we set our practices within a specific Christian worldview and understanding of the human person. We state that we practice our faith with a specific aim: we are aiming at maturity and unity of humans in relation to one another and in relation to the surrounding world. Thus, Christfulness can be understood as a spiritual process towards maturity and wholeness – a process that starts at the individual level but is only fulfilled in relation to others and to God.
We follow 4 phases
- an experience of God’s love in Christ as a protecting and accompanying presence (Christ with me)
- an experience of “Christ in me, the hope of glory” (Christ in me)
- an experience of seeing Christ or the image of God in others (Christ in you), and
- a vision of a redeemed mankind as the body of Christ (Me/us/together in Christ).
