HOLY CROSS MONASTERY
Nov 25 - 27, 2014
"Oh that you would tear open the heavens and come down.."
Isaiah gives full expression to our deep longing for God that arises when we are sensitive to the troubles of the world and our lives. He calls out: "O that you would tear open the heavens and come down, so that the mountains would quake at your presence—“
Come, take refuge and pray. Enter the healing power of monastic rhythm each day. Integrate body and spirit in worship: aligning body and breath through yoga postures and praying the body through posture sequences to sung prayers; sitting in guided and silent meditation; chanting the psalms with the monks and Taizé chants in the beautiful chapel.
These practices, by waking us up and bringing us into harmony with our own humanity and embodiment, can help us let God answer our longing with the shattering power of innocence and vulnerability in the incarnate Christ child.
Holy Cross Monastery
nestled on twenty six magnificent acres on the banks of the Hudson River in the Catskills, is home to an open-hearted Episcopal Benedictine community. A beautiful place to enter a time of prayer, reflection, renewal and recreation. You are invited to join the monks in their services or have private time. The delicious food is prepared by a graduate the Culinary Institute of America.
