Welcome to Contemplative Fire Canada

Travelling Light, Dwelling Deep


Contemplative Fire is a dispersed monastic community that follows a rhythm of life of 'Travelling Light - Dwelling Deep" that is rooted in prayer, study and action.  Drawing from the broad Christian contemplative tradition, we seek to be fully present to the kingdom of God right here and right now.  As our name implies we enjoy the mystery and paradoxes of life, of being both contemplative and on fire.

We welcome you to join us on this journey - please browse our website and stay connected with us.
