The Contemplative Vision Ministry of the Benedictine Spirituality Center in the Pines offers courses and workshops in contemplative practices to foster your individual spiritual journey and to promote contemplative living. Most classes are held at Benet Hill Monastery in the Black Forest.
Contemplative practices facilitate and strengthen our relationship with God. They are an opportunity to invite the divine indwelling into everything we do. Contemplative practices give us the eyes to see and the ears to hear and the courage to live the contemplative life God desires for us.
Contemplative Vision Ministry also serves as a partner with Contemplative Outreach, LTD., a spiritual network of individuals and small faith communities committed to living the contemplative dimension of the gospel in everyday life and to fostering transformation in Christ through the practice of centering prayer.
