I am currently in France to visit family and today we were in one of the most beautiful parts of the country: Auvergne. We were there to visit my dear grandfather’s grave and on the way back, we stopped by a well-known monastery in the region: the Notre-Dame-de-l’Hermitage nunnery and sanctuary. Here are some photos:
Even with the many visitors and the tourists staying at the hostel inside the monastery, the place is so incredibly calm and quiet. The spot is so idyllic for meditation and a simple, contemplative life close to nature. I dream of seeing a Polytheist version of such a sanctuary away from the noise of our modern consumerist society.
