Trappist monks trace their history through 1,700 years of Western civilization. In this documentary, the reality of monastic life, as lived at Mepkin Abbey, a Trappist monastery in South Carolina, combines with fascinating images of the past to explore how the humility, contemplation, and simple life of monks fit into the modern world.

Featuring interviews with best-selling authors: Thomas Moore (Care of the Soul), Kathleen Norris (The Cloister Walk) and Herbert Benson, MD (The Wellness Book).
