This Side of Eden: Seeking God at Westminster Abbey

This Side of Eden: Seeking God at Westminster Abbey

From the grand to the mundane, life at Westminster Abbey in British Columbia is anything but ordinary. This film presents a poetic, compelling and richly intimate portrait of the daily life of the Benedictine Monks, at work, prayer and leisure, with a focus on the days of Holy Week and the Easter Triduum. Young and old, able and infirm, the subtle splendor of their lives is interwoven with the quiet majestic beauty of the natural world that surrounds them. Stunningly photographed and thoughtfully told, this film offers a meditative glimpse into a unique way of life which is grounded on earth but lived looking toward eternity. Learn from the monks about what it means to hear the call, follow and live a monastic vocation in this pageant of liturgy and life.
