All visitors/guests will have access to our public spaces but will not have access to our Sisters’ Dining Room, Sisters’ living areas, meals or overnight accommodations. Some requirements may change as we continue to adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus in the United States. We hold our world in prayer and appreciate your cooperation.
Escape the everyday and discover the extraordinary
- January 22 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
In 1967, three of the most important ecological writer-activists of the 20th century met as friends on the grounds of the Trappist Abbey of Gethsemani in Kentucky: farmer Wendell Berry (1934-), poet Denise Levertov 1923-1997), and monk Thomas Merton (1916-1968). During this retreat, we will contemplatively explore the intertwining lives of the three, delving into their poetry and prose, with specific attention to their engagement with the land.
“Thank you for a wonderful experience!! Such warmth, beauty, acceptance, and love……and the place itself —much appreciated.”
