Panel: Not The Abbey Habit


Leaders of New Monastic communities in the UK and US discuss the realities of this radical Christian calling to truly love God, others, ourselves and the planet. There is much romanticism around monasticism, activism and contemplative spirituality that fails to do justice to the essence of this way of being Christian. This panel seeks to explore the guts of this way of life.

With Cara Heafey (mayBe, Oxford), author and journalist Clare Catford, poet, writer and artist Ian Adams, Ian Mobsby (Moot, London), Mark Berry (safespace Telford), author Shane Claiborne and Tessa Holland (Contemplative Fire, Chichester).
