New essay in Benedictine magazine

I’ll be posting some more audio files soon, but for the moment, I just wanted to announce here that the Benedictine magazine Spirit & Life has published a short essay of mine on the intersection of my life with Swami Abhishiktananda via Osage Monastery in Sand Springs, OK. The essay is (appropriately enough) “Swami Abhishiktananda, Osage Monastery, and Me.”

Osage Monastery is where I became a Benedictine oblate, especially due to its being a center for interreligious dialogue and to its community’s commitment to profound silence and contemplation under the stewardship of Sr. Pascaline Coff, OSB. The monastery became a lay interspiritual retreat center several years ago, and so the oblates are part of “Osage Deanery” now, affiliated with the congregation‘s motherhouse in Clyde, MO.

Similar essays will be appearing in New Camaldoli‘s newsletter and the Golden String Newsletter.
