ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

This is a gem of a program for anyone who wants to delve deeper into Thomas Merton's life, spirituality, and activism. As someone who has been drawn to his writings for more than 30 years, I found the program more than met my hopes and expectations. I'll never forget it.

The week spent studying Thomas Merton was time well spent. We had quality time with several of his contemporaries (monks as well as lay people) and I learned a great deal about Merton and the times he lived in. The participants were diverse and interesting as well. I recommend the program to anyone interested in spiritual life, Thomas Merton, Trappist life, or the Abbey of Gethsemani.

A week with Thomas Merton is an exceptional experience. Not only do you learn about his life and his writings, you get to see the many artifacts at the Thomas Merton Center at Bellarmine University as well as visit the monastery and other important sites nearby. This is a well-organized, inspirational, and educational experience for people of all faiths.
