On Monday of last week, we visited a cave in a valley near Subiaco, a one-hour drive directly west of Rome, into the Apennine mountains that run down the center of the peninsula. Benedict’s story begins in this cave where, as a young man he spent 3 years as a hermit, with a local monk lowering him food in a basket.
With cloisterseminars.org we envision a
that merges intellectual seeking and contemplative practice with monastic wisdom and hospitality.
We invite you to come along on this journey.
