Guild Rule of Life

Members of the Guild seek to respond to their desire for more intimate relationship with the Holy through learning or deepening their practice of spiritual disciplines such as meditation, various forms of prayer and the reading of sacred texts.

Hildegard of Bingen said, “A rule of life should lay upon us like a feather, not like an elephant.” In that spirit of lightness of touch, to clarify our intention for the fullness of life we seek, we offer this simple guideline for members:

"Our individual and community intentions, as well as our ministries, are grounded in contemplative prayer:

we place our growth in Holy Love;
we engage the scriptures;
we exercise a daily spiritual practice;
we live in service to others."
