Sustainers Circle 2023-2024

Registration open through September 30, 2023

Program runs September 2023 – June 2024

Program Description

At Abbey of the Arts we celebrate financial accessibility and strive to make all of our programs available to those who long to participate. We offer many programs at no cost such as our daily and weekly email newsletters, the Lift Every Voice book club (including the Facebook group and monthly podcast/video conversations), the Holy Disorder of Dancing Monks Facebook group, our four 7-day Prayer Cycles of morning and evening prayer including audio and video podcasts (with more weeks to come*), and our occasional Tea with the Abbess sessions. 

Our monthly contemplative prayer services and centering prayer sessions all have a free option when registering to allow full access to those experiences. We offer a sliding scale for all our online programs and extensive scholarship assistance to those who are in financial need.

We also celebrate compensating our many artist, musician, and ministry collaborators financially in ways that help support them in being able to thrive while creating meaningful resources for us and this community.

If you have the means to help us sustain these offerings, we invite you to consider joining our Sustainers Circle for the 2023-2024 academic year (September-June)!

We want to gather a core circle of financial supporters to help keep our offerings and our community open and accessible to all who desire a contemplative and creative life. 

*In 2023-2024 we will be creating a 7-day Love of Thousands Prayer Cycle with songs and readings to help honor angels, saints and ancestors (audio podcasts to be released in October and November 2023) as well as the video podcasts for our 7-day Soul of a Pilgrim Prayer Cycle (to be released in May-June 2024).
