Humility – Christine Valters Paintner

January 21, 2023

“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, PhDEarth, Our Original Monastery: Cultivating Wonder and Gratitude through Intimacy with Nature

How does this framework of humility feel in your body? How might it inform your spiritual practice?
