Our Lady of the Redwoods
Redwoods Monastery is a community of Roman Catholic Cistercian(Trappist) nuns founded in 1962 from the Monastery of Nazareth in Belgium.
Living in a wilderness area of old growth redwood forests contributes profoundly to the spirit of this monastery as well as to the practical life of our community. Our participation in the monastic practices of lectio divina, liturgical prayer, and mindfulness of God and creation build a community of love that extends far beyond the confines of the monastery. We strive to be open to inner and outer transformation that forms the fabric of our life at Redwoods.
