Below is a link to a guest post I have written for the Abbey of the Arts “Monk in the World” guest post series. The Abbey is a virtual monastery offering a variety of online classes, reflections, and resources which integrate contemplative practice and creative expression.
Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, OblSB, REACE is the online Abbess of Abbey of the Arts and the author of 7 books on monastic spirituality and creativity, as well as a poet, photographer, spiritual director, retreat facilitator, and teacher. John Valters Paintner, MTS is the the online Prior of Abbey of the Arts. He has a Masters in Theological Studies and brings over twenty years of experience in parish youth & young adult ministry and Catholic theological education.
I am a proud member of the Abbey’s “Holy Disorder of Dancing Monks”
