The New Monk Lifestyle

The New Monk Project sees itself helping people pioneer an emerging era of ”eco-spirituality.”

At this time, this web site is our principal means of communication and source of mutual support for those engaged in lifting their inner spirit, and concomminantly strengthing their spiritual connection with Earth and the Universe as espoused by Father Thomas Berry and  Dom Bede Griffiths, a pioneering Benedictine monk and revered sage who directed Shantivanam, a Christian monastery.

We seek to meet the needs of people seeking spiritual companionship and support through the expansion of our New Monk membership. Through the auspices of our Library services, affiliations, educational Presentation Series, and eventual alternative Retirement Community projects, we support those who yearn to further empower their sacred contract with life.
