Bonnevaux Project

Who will Bonnevaux welcome?

Bonnevaux will be not only a home for all members and friends of the WCCM. It will welcome everyone of any faith or background with whom we share a contemplative approach to the problems of our world. Rooted in our wisdom tradition it will be open to all sources of wisdom, ancient and modern.
  • Individual meditators will be welcomed to deepen their personal journey.
  • Community leaders and national groups will come for retreat, training, personal deepening         and for special courses. What they receive at Bonnevaux they will take back to their                       communities.
  • Professional and social leaders will meet in the peace and beauty of Bonnevaux both to               renew their commitment as servant-leaders and to be active proponents of social change.
  • Monastics of all forms, traditional and modern will join a core group of resident oblates who       will nurture Bonnevaux’s Benedictine spirit.
  • Interns who may be mid-age, third age, university gap year students or young professionals         will reside and work with the core community.
  • The Oblate Novitiate year will be developed and expanded.
  • Partners in other faiths and organisations will be warmly welcomed.
  • Solitaries seeking to come closer to God and to the world
  • Passing pilgrims will today, as St Benedict said in the 6th century, be ‘received as Christ himself.'
  • The next generation of teachers will be nurtured and empowered to share the gift of meditation with others.
Registered Canadian Charity   Income tax receipts will be issued for donations over $25.
