Prayer Cycles

We have created four sets of 7-day Prayer Cycle of morning and evening prayers as a gift to our Abbey of the Arts community to support you in your daily contemplative practice. The first cycle is on the theme of Earth, Our Original Monastery and the second cycle is on the theme of becoming a Monk in the World. Our third cycle is on the theme of Birthing the Holy. We are delighted to release our fourth cycle on the theme of The Soul of a Pilgrim.

The Soul of a Pilgrim

We are pleased to present you with the fourth week of our Abbey of the Arts Prayer Cycle which takes as its theme pilgrimage, inspired by Christine's book The Soul of a Pilgrim: Eight Practices for the Journey Within.

Birthing the Holy

We are thrilled to present you with the third week of our Abbey of the Arts Prayer Cycle which takes as its theme Birthing the Holy, inspired by Christine's book Birthing the Holy: Wisdom from Mary to Nurture Creativity and Renewal.

Monk in the World

We are excited to offer you the second week of our Abbey of the Arts Prayer Cycle which takes as its theme Monk in the World, inspired by Abbey of the Arts guiding principles in the Monk Manifesto.

Earth Monastery

We are delighted to share with you the first week of our Abbey of the Arts Prayer Cycle which takes as its theme Earth as Original Monastery, inspired by Christine’s book Earth, Our Original Monastery. Nourishing an earth-cherishing consciousness is central to our vision and practice.

While this is a free offeringwe rely on donations to help to cover our many operational costs and permission fees. We hope to be able to create additional weeks to the Prayer Cycle over time and your contributions will help us in being able to make time to do this and support the writers, musicians, and other artists involved.
