Arts Residency at Mt. Saviour Monastery



The Visitation Residency Program offers the opportunity to live and work for a week with a small, intimate group of artists and writers at a contemplative Benedictine monastery. We believe deeper creativity, vision, and other riches are to be found in sharing gifts and resources within communal rhythms of work, prayer, nature, and silence.


There are two sessions this summer:
June 24-30
August 12-18


The May 15th deadline has passed, though we are accepting applications for the waitlist.









You can be immersed in the life of the community around you, and also be immersed in your own life, your own inner life, which can also be as thronged and active as the life of any community you might be living in.

Immersed is a good word; it sounds to me like sinking to the bottom of the medium you're living in. But sinking in a way that allows you to breathe, and to see, and eventually to sum up or recapture what you've seen... I think you can only confidently drop to the bottom of a medium you're living in if you love it.
