We, [alongside our extended community], are committed to living  attentively  to  Divine Presence  through the practice of stillness, a simple lifestyle and ongoing discernment. We are committed to sharing the fruits of our contemplative practices through creatively offering a variety of soul-nourishing programmes: at our home, at centres nationally, internationally and on-line. 

We combine our training and background in psychology and  spirituality, and  creatively interweave it with a Celtic Meditative Monasticism for today. (See further details on the "About" tab  above)
