You are Invited to The Idea of a Village Conference 2018

As many of you readers know, my family and I moved some time ago to live in the shadow Clear Creek Abbey, a traditional Benedictine Abbey in the Ozark hills of Oklahoma. We were in search of a different way of life—a life of simplicity and contact with the earth, anchored by the ora et labora of the Abbey’s monks.

We are not alone. Many other families have moved to Clear Creek as well, and a nascent “village” is forming around the monastery. For the past few years, villagers and friends of the monks have been gathering to discuss the meaning of living in community in the modern world at a conference called The Idea of a Village.

The past two conferences have been tremendously successful, drawing hundreds from all over the country and all walks of life. I would like to invite you to this year’s conference, scheduled for Saturday, June 30. 

The 2018 conference will feature:

  • engaging speakers (including yours truly)
  • live music and dancing
  • locally brewed beer
  • delicious food
  • a tour of Clear Creek Abbey
  • blacksmithing and craft demonstrations
  • and more

This is a day of learning and rejoicing together that you won’t want to miss.

I hope to see you there—but don’t wait! There’s only a few weeks left before the conference.
