Hello my dear and beautiful monks,
I have made the long journey across the ocean and am settling into my new home in Vienna, Austria. More about the pilgrimage to be posted here soon as well as photos, but in the meantime I have a present for you!
Don't you just love presents!
Pour yourself a cup of tea, close your eyes, and take three slow deep breaths.
Then open your eyes, enlarge the Vimeo screen below, press play, and allow the meditation to take you into the landscape of the Monk Manifesto through art and music. Three and a half minutes inviting you to consider whether you might make being a monk in the world a deeper part of your life.
I am profoundly grateful to the ever-talented and delightful Kristin Noelle for sharing her amazing art for this project and to the wonderful Trish Bruxvoort Colligan for letting her gorgeous music be a part of this gift (you should definitely visit both of their websites for lots more wondrous art and music resources!).
If you loved this, please consider sharing this gift with others. Help spread some monk love!
Sending love to you across land and ocean,
