March Day of Mindfulness at the Abbey

March 8 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Dear Friends,

Please consider treating yourself to a day of deep stillness in community with the earth, sky, trees, birds and each other as we come together in the spaciousness of silence—naturally encouraging seeds of compassion, joy, love, and faith to strengthen within us. As we practice stopping, calming and resting our bodies and minds within an atmosphere of peaceful silence at the Trappist Abbey in Carlton, Oregon, we nourish our ability to be present in the moment, and cultivate our capacity to heal wounds within ourselves, our families, our communities, and the world. Both new and experienced practitioners of any or no faith tradition are welcome!

Our silent days of mindfulness at the Abbey are scheduled for the second Friday of every month, and I will send out a reminder in advance. The suggested donation/ dana for the day is $50.00 (as a group, not individually) and so please prepare accordingly. If you have any questions about the day, you can email me at nisisegor@gmail.com.

Information and Schedule for the Silent Day of Mindfulness at Bethany House:

Together we will enjoy the silence and meditation experienced by the Trappist Monks. The Abbey graciously provides a cart with coffee, hot water and a variety of teas at Bethany House. Bring your own lunch, appropriate clothing for outdoor walking mediation (there are beautiful trails and a pond) as well as any blankets or special cushions for mediation (chairs, cushions and benches are provided).

Safety precautions:

  • Those who wish to attend should be up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations, including boosters if relevant
  • If you have had symptoms or recent contact with a positive case of COVID-19 on the day you are coming, we ask that you do not come
  • Please bring a mask to wear while indoors at Bethany House in support of those present
  • We will practice social distancing indoors
  • Please wash your hands frequently
  • We follow the trail guidelines at the trail entrance and respectfully do not walk off the trails

Our practice is flexible, located at Bethany House, and generally follows this schedule:

“The miracle is not to walk on water.
The miracle is to walk on the green earth,
dwelling deeply in the present moment
and feeling truly alive.”
