This day of rituals begins early in the morning at 6 AM, and ends with a ritual dinner at 6 PM.
You can choose which parts of the day you attend – you can join us for just one ritual, or stay for all 14 hours! We will contact you after your reservation
For the second time this season, The Monastery is coming to the Kaaistudios with A-LIFE, a ritual day that is patterned to the rhythm of the seasons. This time, the urban monks guide you through the transition from autumn to winter. You can live the life of a monk for the full 14 hours or take part in only one ritual, attend a lecture, or join a ritual dinner.
In the whirlwind of work, relationships, deadlines and discussions, we sometimes get distracted from the most important things in life: feeling alive and being conscious of our entire being and everything around you. The Monastery is an experimental spiritual urban community that aims to do exactly that: by performing daily rituals and making every action an intense experience. The ‘monks’ who will lead the A-LIFE cycle are Elke Van Campenhout, Stijn Smeets and Robin Amanda Creswell.

The Monastery koos ervoor de ticketinkomsten weg te geven aan Brussel Helpt. De inkomsten van de jaarlijkse solidariteitsactie gaan deze keer naar Les Gazelles de Bruxelles, een nieuwe socio-sportieve organisatie die mensen uit kwetsbare groepen kracht bijzet door samen te gaan joggen.
