First Friday Tea with the Abbess

Dearest monks, artists, and pilgrims,

I so enjoyed our first Tea with the Abbess session. Since I can’t pour you a cup of tea myself I led a brief meditation for Imbolc instead. Then I shared some of our programs for February and answered a lot of great questions. Such a joyful time with our wonderful community. Grateful to the more than 100 dancing monks who showed up live.

We have a number of resources to support you in your contemplative journey including:

February Lift Every Voice Book Club –Then They Came for Mine: Healing from Racial Trauma and Violence by Tracey Michae’l Lewis-Giggetts

Christine’s forthcoming collection – Love Holds You: Poems and Devotions for Times of Uncertainty
