Monastery of the Risen Christ

The Monastery of the Risen Christ is a Charismatic-Catholic Benedictine monastery located on 40 acre near San Luis Obispo, California. The founding abbot, David Geraets (O.S.B), also taught on the Jesus prayer. He wrote his own instruction book on the prayer, as well as made a prayer ropes with wooden beads and a metal of Saint Benedict.

The monastery also offers Charismatic Spiritual Direction retreats, as well as Benedictine Oblate support for lay monastics. As they do not yet have a retreat house, they often go out to other retreat centers to teach. They do, however, welcome those seeking renewal to come for spiritual direction, personal prayer, and to join them in praying the divine office, as well as Lectio Divina.
