Our invitation to you
What can we gain by sailing to the moon if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves?
This is the most important of all voyages of discovery, and without it, all the rest are not only useless, but disastrous. Thomas Merton
The Principles of New Monasticisms urges us to consider
Spiritual wisdom enriching society.
Wisdom is a gift and is sought in study and reflection. The company of those who share the spiritual journey is valued. Tradition is a storehouse of wisdom.
We generally run three teaching events or conferences
during the year. We endeavour to bring the best speakers on contemporary topics with a particular emphasis on spirituality and the search for meaning. Irish Christianity informs our movement but we are open to the wisdom that other faiths inspire.
