Logistics

Life at the Monastic Academy is radically simple and orderly. Many find the clarity of the daily schedule to be an enormous relief.


Location

The Monastic Academy is located in Lowell, VT. The property includes breath-taking views of the Green Mountains, hundreds of acres of forest and field to explore, three ponds, a large garden, and a sauna.

Food

There are two meals a day. Meals are typically vegan and gluten free, with some vegetarian or dairy products if they are donated. However, residents are welcome to buy their own meat or dairy products. We buy local and organic food whenever possible. This is greatly facilitated by Vermont’s thriving local/organic food system. We are happy to make any reasonable dietary accommodations.

Lodging

Residents receive a bed and storage in a shared living space. Conditions are comfortable and spartan.


Cost

The training cost of the program is a one-time payment of $6,000. This fee covers your entire training period including room and board. Needs-based scholarships to significantly reduce the fee are available. We also offer monthly living allowances to residents beginning their second month.


Vacation

Residents can take four free days a month, twenty days of vacation per year, and one retreat off. Free and vacation days can be scheduled at essentially any time (provided that the resident’s responsibilities are taken care of, and the vacation does not substantially inconvenience the organization). Additionally, each year, residents may do one meditation retreat at another center, for up to seven days.


Stipend

Residents receive a monthly stipend of at least $250.

The world desperately needs awakened leaders.
