About Convents & Monasteries

If you are religious, you might consider dedicating your life to your religious belief by living in a convent or monastery. These buildings are designed as spaces for prayer or meditation, and many house the domestic lives of the religious leaders.

Orthodox Catholic priests and nuns live in these spaces and act as the head of the Orthodox Catholic church, and have been since medieval times. Episcopal Christians, a more recent branch of Christianity popular in North and Latin America, also use these spaces for prayer and as domestic quarters. A typical day as a nun or priest may involve leading prayers in the oratory, building religious community by organizing religious events, or even tasks as simple as cleaning the rooms in the convent or other spaces.

If you practice one of the Eastern religions such as Buddhism or Hindu, you may consider becoming a Buddhist or Hindu monk. As a monk, you would live in a monastery, and practice traditional meditation.

Most of these religions promote a reserved life of poverty and prayer, so dedicating yourself to this lifestyle is a decision only you and you alone can make. But if you decide that this is the right path for you, the best way to pursue this path is by reaching out to your local religious organization. Talk to your leaders and get involved in what's happening in your community. Most do not require any formal education or training, but you are making a commitment to a certain lifestyle and it may require education through your religious institution.

Buddhism, Jainism, Christian, and Hinduism will all teach different aspects of religions and traditions. Prayers and philosophies will also be different with Eastern Orthodox churches when compared to Hindu, oriental, catholic, or Latin religions. Etymology, oratory, and other lessons will be given to residents to give them education when living a monastic life. The community is often welcome to visiting a convent or monastery to learn more about its traditions and this is a great way to see different domestic buildings and houses. Sleeping quarters are often divided between men and women. Some will also have men and women eat in different rooms. If you want to join a convent or monastery, you can see how individuals live and what buildings and space is reserved for classes, meditations, eating, and sleeping. Prayers may be done alone, or in a group at certain times of the day. Spaces will be reserved for meditation, eating, gardening, and other activities throughout the day. You will want to learn about the convent or monastery before making a decision on if you want to join or not. Visiting is often allowed and gives society a chance to see what life would be like as a monk or nun. Convents and monasteries go back to medieval times, and have an interesting history you can learn when visiting one.
