New Expressions


new expressions

The monastic community has been meeting regularly for more than two years and the monks are now considering new expressions of their already existing
Benedictine traditions within the area of the monastic enclosure.

Sacred activities (meditation, acts of worship, ritual)
Performative & creative arts (singing, instrumental, pottery, icons)
Home building (cooking, gardening, hospitality, cleaning)
Mutual care (the young, the old, continuing development)
Community building (participating in meetings and conversations)
Community leadership (spiritual and organisational)
Community expressions (psycho-spiritual counselling, teaching, pastoral care)
Caring for our tradition (research, publishing, library)

These venerable traditions of Benedictine monasticism
can be renewed and shared with the wider community.

Will you help us live new expressions?ImitateFacialExpressions_122712-617x416

By praying for us
By participating in the developments
By learning with us from the tradition
By joining us for a morning or a day
By financially supporting the tradition
By exploring some new possibilities

Would you like to work with us and explore the traditions of monastic life?
We are considering ways in which we can guide people of different cultures and faith perspectives:
to explore different spiritual traditions –
to safely learn from our human experience –
to live the eternal values embodied in the lives and communities of our monastic forebears.
