After more than 50 years of living the monastic life, Joan Chittister asked herself some questions: What—if anything of monastic life—is worth passing on to others in our time? What does monasticism offer seekers who are already overwhelmed by all the spiritual and secular options available to them? And how can those outside traditional monasteries embrace this life? Her answer was to begin Monasteries of the Heart. This eCourse is your opportunity to join her in creating a Monastery of the Heart—wherever you are—as she explores the key elements to the life: prayer, work, silence, community, good zeal, humility…. The course includes written reflections and audio selections by Sister Joan, discussion questions, journaling prompts, creative projects and simple monastic practices to incorporate into your daily life.
