Practice and Meditation

The New Camaldoli Hermitage, in Big Sur, offers: Ora et Labora (a contemplative immersion program) and directed (preached) retreats. During the course of the year, the Hermitage may offer special “directed” retreats, usually held on the weekends, for those who would like to attend lectures from Monks or other qualified speakers on an array of topics dealing with the religious, spiritual and psychological aspects of life and faith. These retreats differ from the typical “unguided” retreat in that there is a schedule of lectures set, with speakers and topics of interest.

The Place

The community in Big Sur is situated in the rugged coastal mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Located on 899 acres at an elevation of 1300 feet, the Hermitage is surrounded by California chaparral, redwood, madrone, bay laurel, and an oak forest. The view is of both ocean and woods – a natural setting profoundly conducive to the contemplative way of life. The New Camaldoli Hermitage has said "Big Sur is one of the most beautiful places on earth; we live and welcome guests here, so that we and they may know God in this beauty and share the same knowledge with others".
