Program Details - Christian Spirituality at Tall Timber

Christian Spirituality at Tall Timber provides a monastic experience for students who want to explore the history and practice of Christian spirituality. Students spend three weeks following a modified Benedictine Rule, which strikes a balance between work (kitchen duty, special projects at the camp), prayer (corporate worship four times a day, personal devotions), and study. Students live in community, read great texts from the history of spirituality (e.g., Augustine’s Confessions), study Scripture, meet daily in small groups, and follow various practices that apply what they are learning to life at Tall Timber and to life once they return to campus.
