Overview

Monasteries and convents are the repositories of centuries-old wisdom, passed down by the sincere efforts of generations of devout seekers after wisdom and truth. Wisdom from the Monastery takes you within the walls of the cloister to discover:

  • How fasting can make you feel lighter in body and mind, purifying your awareness and lead to self-mastery.
  • The ancient traditions of monastic healing as found in the Rule of St. Benedict, the writings of Hildegard of Bingen, and the herb gardens and kitchens of today's monasteries and convents.
  • The way to peace of mind and self-understanding through prayer, meditation, contemplation and silence.

    The goal of monastic life is not self-denial, but rather a more abundant life, based on helping one's neighbors and returning to god. No book can claim to answer every question. But listen to the monks and nuns will meet in these pages. Their words and example can bring comfort and shine a light on your path.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
 “Featuring numerous daily exercises, advice and anecdotes, this compilation of words from monks and nuns who have chosen lives of renunciation and simplicity brings a calm perspective to such diverse endeavors as fasting for purification of the soul, moderation and orderliness. Even a brief read is enough to inspire a break for reflection.”
