New Monasticisms Ireland

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

Morning Meditation

Living by the principles

The Principles of New Monasticisms urges us to consider Spiritual wisdom enriches society.
Wisdom is a gift and is ought in study and reflection. The company of those who share the spiritual journey is valued. and that Tradition is a storehouse of wisdom.

New Monasticisms Ireland Conferences

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.

Book Clubs

Our Book Clubs

Being informed and inspired is important to us. We run two book clubs. Sophia Book Club in The Lantern Centre Dublin 8. and Cill Dara Book Club which meets in Solas Bhride, Tully Road, Kildare. Check in to our About page for details about each of our clubs. This page will tell you about what we are reading and will also give you information about times and dates. All are welcome to join!

The chance to hear the reflective and challenging words of Teresa Forcades, one of the great spirits of today, was a real gift. The gatherings for these talks I find uplifting, and I leave with a renewed sense of vision, community and love.
