Monastic Guest – Mark Hunter
Monastic Guest Writes About his Experience
By Mark Hunter
Mepkin Abbey’s monastic guest program is not for everyone. But For those courageous enough to confront themselves amidst the silence will find a supportive community full of love and genuine hospitality. It’s an ideal environment to take a contemplative stance that poses the least resistance to being overtaken by the Divine. Having been graciously integrated into Trappist life as a monk for a month, I am now convinced Mepkin holds the antidote for today’s most serious spiritual ills. The MGP is the South’s best kept secret, a treasure hidden within an unbroken chain of 1,000 years of contemplative life and wisdom.
For serious seekers, do yourself a favor and do it!
