2015 Monastic Experience Weekend at Redwoods Monastery
If you are interested in monastic life or want to deepen your life of prayer and you are a woman between the ages of 20 and 40, inquire about Redwoods Monastic Experience Weekend, May 28 -31, 2015.
Here's what others have said about their experience:
To be given the chance to step into the life here. For me it was really valuable to experience for myself how a life of prayer actually works… not just the Office and Mass… but work and living in the surroundings here are a part of the holistic life style.
The joyful openness everyone fosters here. I felt free to explore the forest, which I know gives me life, but also invited to interact with everyone because of the joy with which you life.
It was the common prayer - when prayers were offered, sung with beautiful voices, profoundness could be felt. I felt inspired as prayers were offered amidst beautiful nature reflected on the glass (in the church)
To join in the gardening as a group is something I did not expect, but it was fun, meaningful when we ate something that we grew.
