Monastic Practice of Humility – Christine Valters Paintner 

January 17, 2017

“The monastic practice of humility is an invitation to allow others to offer us wisdom, to recognize that we don’t always have the answer ourselves. The root of the word humility is humus, which means “of the earth.” To be humble as a monk means to be profoundly earthy and grounded, to remember from where we arise and to where we return.”
.— Christine Valters Paintner, PhD Earth as the Original Monastery~ A Self-Study Online Retreat
