Throughout the ages, many men and women have dedicated themselves to lives of prayerful contemplation and service to others. It is from their example that we strive to be witnesses to compassion and peace in a world where both seem to be in short supply.
Because of our interfaith nature, each of us expresses our monastic practice in a slightly different way. While we are bound by a common Rule of Life, the monastic way of someone who follows the Buddhist path will not be the same as someone who follows a Christian or even a Pagan path. We constantly strive to share our gifts as a community in a way that celebrates both our differences and our similarities, and that strengthens us as a whole. We believe that in this way, we can serve as powerful witnesses to those around us that peace and understanding are not only possible, but necessary for the betterment of our world.
