Dear Friends : Now is a season for the hermitage: a time to pull in the oars, return to the core simplicity of my monastic vocation, and focus on some important academic research and writing. During this time I will continue to consider new spiritual direction clients, and will offer the occasional retreat or online workshop, but will be greatly reducing my teaching schedule and public presence for the foreseeable future. There is ultimately one needful thing, and that is to sit at the feet of the Divine Mystery, eschewing all worldly distractions, in tireless pursuit of interior stillness, wisdom, illumination, and theosis. May each of you, in your own ways, move surely into the blessed silence of the heart. As St. Moses the Ethiopian wisely instructed: 'Sit in your cell, and your cell will teach you everything.' With peace and every blessing for the endless pilgrim journey,  — Fr. Brendan+
