Benedictine spirituality is more readily experienced than defined. These weekends in the Monastery Guesthouse (beginning with Vespers at 6.30pm on Friday, concluding after lunch on Sunday) provide the opportunity to enter fully into the monastic rhythm and balance of prayer, work, lectio divina, hospitality and community life.
There will be opportunities to ponder the riches of the scriptures and monastic literature, both in group discussions and personal silence and solitude, bringing from the ‘storeroom, things both new and old.’ Participants are also invited to join the community for silent meals in the refectory, one of many invitations to listen with the ‘ear of the heart.’
The cost includes two nights' accommodation at the Monastery Guesthouse, meals and entry into the Museum and Art Gallery.
PLEASE NOTE: online bookings for this close on Monday 1 November. For booking enquiries after this date please phone the New Norcia Guesthouse on (08) 9654 8002, to ensure accommodation is still available.
