Welcome to the Living Miracles Monastery in the Strawberry River canyon area of Utah, east of Salt Lake City.
This is a monastery dedicated to living by the teachings and examples of Jesus Christ.
The Monastery is currently being used
as a residence for the Messengers of Peace.
Its purpose is to support the deep inward journey of
the undoing of the ego
and coming to a consistent experience of peace and joy.
Please read the letter below for further details.
This is a time of transition for our Living Miracles Monastery in Duchesne, Utah. We felt it would be helpful to share some thoughts to give a clear understanding of exactly how the Monastery will continue to be used for a deepening of our shared purpose. It has been a wonderful process to witness how all things are used for our awakening. The Monastery has been a powerful symbol for all of us as we approached and uncovered the thought system of fear and allowed our first uneasy steps to be taken towards serving one purpose. However, as with all helpful symbols, there comes a point when they have to be loosened from and released so that the deepening can continue. The Monastery, always a reflection of our deepest desire, will now be serving solely as a backdrop for accepting the Atonement.
The Monastery sits atop the Strawberry Fields Campground (SFC) and beside Angels Landing (AL). SFC and AL are places where people can come and stay by invitation to drop deeper into the experience of "I will step back and let Him lead the way" (W-155). This invitation is offered in support of our shared purpose and monastic way of life, which to us, is a reverent open-mindedness along with a sense of acceptance that "of myself I can do nothing" (John 8:28). To stay at these two properties is a gift from the Spirit as well as a beautiful opportunity that will benefit the mind and support the practice of deep inner listening to the Holy Spirit.
The Monastery and adjacent properties are symbolic backdrops which nurture and support a very profound state of Stillness in the mind. When you are invited to the adjacent properties the guidelines are simple: While joining on a project you are responsible for your own state of mind. Tuning into our shared purpose will help you access this deep inner experience.
David and several of the Messengers of Peace will reside at the Monastery for parts of the year. The vibration feels like that of a devoted and reverent temple. Thus, the Monastery has become a place dedicated to Stillness and acceptance of the Atonement. The devotion of the residents is an inspiration to everyone taking their steps in this direction.
Thank You Holy Spirit for honoring and Answering the prayer of our hearts.
