The foundation of our monastery lies in the mystical teachings of Jesus as taught in A Course in Miracles. It is a place of prayer and devotion, where awakening through forgiveness is the singular purpose. Awakening to Who we are is letting go of all that we are not (the ego). The Spirit's purpose is consistently supported at the Monastery, every day being Guided by Him. Held in the peace and stillness of this beautiful setting, it is easy to discern the difference between the Spirit and the ego. There are no grey areas - the Spirit’s Purpose shines bright and joins us with our brothers in a collaborative, joyful, loving experience! All else is a call for healing and forgiveness. Recently I was called into three days of silence and prayer. During this time Jesus described the Monastery as being “a sanctuary of prayer, a place for brothers and sisters who thirst to come and drink from the Living Waters, and then continue on their way.”
And so the Monastery is now open for in-person ‘Prayer Stays’. These stays can be visits of up to two weeks. For more information and to apply, see here

Words cannot describe the Gift and honor it is to live a life in service to the Spirit. Every leap of faith we take in His direction is so worth it, for it brings us closer to God; filling our mind with clarity and purpose, and our heart with fulfillment and Love. In ACIM Jesus describes, “In this world you can become a spotless mirror, in which the Holiness of your Creator shines forth from you to all around you. You can reflect Heaven here.” (T-14.IX.) With Love and Gratitude, Kirsten ❤️
Prayer Stays Prayer Stays are for one or two weeks. Occasionally there are openings for 3 night stays. These Prayer Stays are an opportunity to be in a place of reverence, and take quiet prayer-time alone to deepen in relationship with God / Jesus. As individually guided, there are opportunities to be of service, and to join with monastery community members, such as for morning ACIM lesson prayer, meditation, altar sessions, or online events.

Mystical Community Residential Stays These residential stays are a longer-term dive into full-time devotional prayer-life, living and applying the teachings of ACIM. Stewarding the Monastery through devotional service is our collaborative backdrop for awakening.
