"Join in the General Dance"

We are a diverse community drawing from Merton’s experience and insights to strengthen our own commitment to spiritual growth. We gather several times per year around a speaker or event, to facilitate learning, conversation and celebration - always with a focus to deepen our understanding using his profound thought as a means to influence our journey.

My dear Brothers, we are already one. But we imagine that we are not. And what we have to recover is our original unity.
What we have to be is what we are.
