For decades, advances in technology and economic growth have led us to transform our ways of life. Despite all the positive aspects of this growth, studies show that collectively, our level of stress and anxiety continues to increase, and our hectic pace of life always give us an impression of lacking time.

As a result, many people question and seek a simpler life. It is interesting to note that the Augustinians espoused similar principles over the centuries. Their way of life gave them a balance between body and soul, in which silence has an important place.

During this month, we invite you to take inspiration from our dear Augustinians by taking the time to contemplate nature as it reveals all its beauty, to connect with the Earth’s abundance by gardening, for example, or to connect with your loved ones by being authentically present.
