Being a Monk in the World – Christine Valters Paintner

September 11, 2019

“Anyone can live like a monk in their daily life, even if they are far from a monastery, are married, or have children.  Being a monk in the world means cultivating a commitment to slowness, spaciousness, and attentiveness to the sacred dimension of each object and activity.”
