Transformative Living through Contemplative & Expressive Arts
Welcome to Abbey of the Arts, a virtual global online monastery offering pilgrimages, online classes and retreats, reflections, and resources which integrate contemplative practice and creative expression.
We Dance Wild (a poem by Joel McKerrow for the Holy Disorder of Dancing Monks)
Engaging, practice-oriented books on the spiritual life by Christine Valters Paintner
Songs & Dances to Embody Your Inner Monk and Mystic
This is what we need! Christine and John are offering us a "moving monastery" yet with solid grounding in Scripture, Nature, Art, the Tradition, and the Saints! Abbey of the Arts is spirituality for our time and every time.
—Richard Rohr, OFM
