A monk’s wisdom
– Experience the serenity of the monastery
– Morning prayer
– Ancient wisdom for our times
No one is more ‘monk-ish’ than Anselm Grün: long habit, long hair, beard, gentle voice. However, this benedict monk may have a modest appearance, he is one of the most famous teachers of his time. Grün is very worldly and talks about spirituality in a clear and inspiring manner. He studied intense eastern meditation techniques and psychology, and developed a magnanimous, open vision on conscious living. He wrote lots of books, on leadership (Grün leads his big monastery as a CFO), on silence, courage, meditation, time, change and all other big human themes. We’re proud to have him at the Happinez Festival, where he will share his wisdom and his ‘sacred morning prayers’.
Quote: ‘True happiness is a gift we can find in ourselves. Happiness is joy.’
