GREEN MOUNTAIN MONASTERY ~ THOMAS BERRY SANCTUARY

Welcome to Green Mountain Monastery & Thomas Berry Sanctuary

  • "Our mission is to go into the future together with the natural world as a Single Sacred Community."

    Fr. Thomas Berry

  • "We are not lacking in the dynamic forces needed to create the future. We live immersed in a sea of energy beyond all comprehension. But this energy, in an ultimate sense, is ours not by domination but by invocation."

    Fr. Thomas Berry

  • "So integral is our inner world with the outer world that if the outer world is damaged, then the inner life of our souls is diminished proportionately."

    Fr. Thomas Berry

  • "We must go far beyond any transformation of contemporary culture.  We must go back to the genetic imperative from which human cultures emerge by a descent into our pre-rational and instinctive resources. 

    Our cultural resources have lost their integrity.  They cannot be trusted.  What is needed is not transcendence but “inscendence”, a return to our deeper knowing."

    Fr. Thomas Berry
