I commit to support and encourage other members
of this new monastic community.
While much of the practice of the new monastic is internal, this covenant is lived out and find expression through community. Community takes many forms. The commitment to self-less service and compassion and to work for justice, compassion and world transformation impact one’s circle of influence and the world at large. Commitment to this new monastic community is a deeper commitment of support, companionship, mentorship, and to follow the monastic rule of life.
