Hindu Christian Forum
The Hindu Christian Forum are hosting a seminar entitled ‘What is Modern Yoga? for Hindus and Christians on 12th March 2013 from 11am to 4.30pm at Marie Eugenie Room, Heythrop College, Kensington Square, London W8 5HN.
‘What is Modern Yoga?’
This seminar will focus on the form of yoga which is most well known today – physical yoga or ‘hatha yoga’. In the first part of the day, leading scholars will present the origins of ‘hatha yoga’ and its development into a modern Western fitness phenomenon. The final part of the day will be an open forum for Hindus and Christians –
- What is the relationship of modern yoga and Hinduism? Can Christians do yoga?
- Should Christian Church halls be used for yoga?
- How does the Hindu community feel about the yoga industry now that it is ‘bigger than Microsoft’?
Lunch will be provided and there is no cost for the day.

Christian Muslim Dialogue Group
The Christian Muslim Dialogue meets once a month at St Philip’s Church covering various discussion topics and themes. In November we will be holding a one day conference entitled ‘Non-Stop Turmoil or Global Spring’ (please see ‘events’ section of the website).
During our meetings we look at theological and cultural topics such as: Scripture, The Arab Spring, Religion and Science and most recently Religious Pluralism from a Muslim perspective. We were delighted to be joined by the Omani delegation from the ‘Religious Tolerance’ exhibition this month which took place at St Philip’s Church.
Meeting together with local people in dialogue from the Christian and Muslim faiths (as well as people from other faiths and none) is such a wonderful opportunity for discovery in learning about one’s own faith perspective and also that of our neighbours. We are always open to new ideas on discussion topics and we welcome anyone to join us for our monthly gatherings. If you would like to know about future meetings then please contact St Philip’s Centre by telephoning 0116 273 3459 or email email@example.com
