GREEN MOUNTAIN MONASTERY ~ THOMAS BERRY SANCTUARY

Welcome to Green Mountain Monastery & Thomas Berry Sanctuary

  • My own suggestion is that we must go far beyond any transformation of contemporary culture.  We must go back to the genetic imperative from which human cultures emerge and from which they can never be separated.....Our cultural resources have lost their integrity, they cannot be trusted.  What is needed in not transcendence but inscendence, not the brain but the gene.

    Fr. Thomas Berry

  • In moments of confusion such as at present, we are not left simply with our own rational contrivances. We are supported by the ultimate powers of the universe as they make themselves present to us through the spontaneities within our own beings. This intimacy with our genetic endowment is the role of the shamanic personality....who journeys into the far regions of the cosmic mystery, bringing back the vision and power needed by the human community at the most elementary level. 

    Fr. Thomas Berry

  • Every being has its own interior, its subjectivity, its mystery, its numinous aspect.   Becoming who we are is the immediate responsibility of every being. 

    Fr. Thomas Berry

  • "To reduce any mode of being simply to that of a commodity within the community of existence is a betrayal."

    Fr. Thomas Berry
