Space For Quiet Contemplation: Imogen Stuart Beehive Meditation Cell

The Imogen Stuart Beehive Meditation Cell at The Chapel of Reconciliation


The beehive meditation cell was created by renowned sculptor Imogen Stuart in 1990. In an increasingly chaotic world, it offers a personal centre for spiritual reflection and renewal.


This meditation room is built of cedarwood, an extremely durable timber which was already used in biblical times. Every detail is hand-finished, from the inside and outside walls to the separate items. Traditional wood-joints have been used instead of nails. The door runs on a track and the door-handle is functional as well as decorative. The window and skylight are made of hand-cast glass, the leading in the former being in the shape of the old Irish St Brigid’s Cross.


The meditation cell is now located in the Chapel of Reconciliation and visitors are welcome to experience this quiet, peaceful space.
