About us:

Some people like intellectual puzzles, some like to meditate on things spiritual, some like to share thoughtful conversations, some good food and wine. We love all these, and also meeting others who love the same.

We are seekers, world travelers, teachers and learners. From the Benedictine  tradition we learned that the passion for learning and the desire for God are part of the same journey. And that a monastic life style isn't only for monasteries but can be lived in the day to day life outside the monastery, too. 

With Cloister Seminars we envision a place where we share and deepen our interest in monastic traditions and teachings across ages and continents.

Where we invite you on a journey  into the rich heritage of monastic wisdom and healing traditions and how they can sustain and replenish our soul's journey today.

We would be honored to welcome you on this journey!
