My deepest experience of silence is interior. Silence is a state of being, a state of interior contemplation. — Dr. Beverly Lanzetta
Dr. Lanzetta is also a vowed monk of peace living in the world, who has formed a community of new monks—single, married, partnered, celibate, etc.—dedicated to the universal mystical heart and to the spirituality of nonviolence. She mentors people who seek a deeper contemplative commitment and who wish to take personal monastic vows. She has taught theology at Villanova University, Prescott College, and Grinnell College.
