Bonnevaux centre for Peace

The international home of a monastery without walls, Bonnevaux is developing on the site of a 12th century Abbey energised by centuries of contemplative silence in the humane spirit of St Benedict. A resident community lives here in the spirit of Benedictine wisdom following a daily rhythm of life, balancing daily times of prayer, work and study. Hospitality for guests, retreats and conferences share the peace of Bonnevaux with many so they can transmit it to others.

We are growing as a community of meditators in more than 100 countries, committed to developing a contemplative Christian life for our time and to dialogue between religion, science, business and art, body and mind. At the heart of this community is the meeting of many weekly groups, both physically and online, which introduce the essential teaching of meditation and help to deepen the inner journey. Personal transformation leads then to social and global transformation.
