St Bride's: News

Tiger stalks men

tiger.gifTiger Aspect has been commissioned (via the BBC’s Religion & Ethics dept) to make a series of three one hour documentaries for BBC2 which would be filmed over August - September.

cloisters.jpgThe project is a serious examination of spirituality in the modern world and will involve four male members of the public being invited to spend an extended period of time living in a monastery alongside the community of monks. Although anyone is welcome to apply, we would very much like to include someone from the business world as one of the four.

The aim is to place our volunteers in an environment where they can explore their own relationship to spirituality in an atmosphere of quiet contemplation. For them, it is an opportunity to reflect on the lives they are leading, examine their priorities and review the choices they have made. They would also learn about the history and traditions of monastic life and be given guidance on their spiritual quest.

Our volunteers, who will come from a variety of backgrounds and age groups, do not necessarily need to be practicing Christians, although they would need to be genuinely interested and committed to the idea as they will be away for six weeks.

We feel very strongly that these films have the potential to be an extremely important and sensitive exploration of the role that faith and spirituality can play in a fast-moving world dominated by material possessions.

We are particularly keen to hear from anyone from the world of business, who would relish the chance of conducting their own personal search for meaning and understanding.

If you would like to discuss the project in more detail, please do not hesitate to call me, Gabe Solomon, on 020 7544 1637. Alternatively, you can contact me via email:
