Gut Saunstorf – Place of Stillness
The modern monastery
A monastery is a place of silence, contemplation and seclusion from the world. Physical work, spiritual study and hospitality characterize monastic life.
We continue this tradition in the modern monastery – free from obsolete confessional constraints.
This inner path serves being here in this very moment. It includes everything, and it is oriented towards the divine.
Economic considerations are secondary, although good housekeeping and healthy finances are a necessity. Most of the people who work here do so primarily because they want to follow an inner path, grow and serve the modern monastery – as individuals and in community.
At Gut Saunstorf, near Lake Schwerin and the beautiful Hanseatic city of Wismar, surrounded by the wonderful nature of Mecklenburg, the inner monastery finds an outer home in a place of stillness.
