Hybrid: Monastic Ecological Wisdom for Contemporary Christians

With Samuel Torvend

April 20, 2024

Participants will explore the values and practices of early Benedictine life that support our current efforts “to cherish the wondrous works of God, and protect and restore the beauty and the integrity of all creation.” With presentations, guided meditation, and discussion, participants will discover how ancient and contemporary monastic wisdom can inform our lives during the climate crisis and give us hope for the future.
