Overview
More
Visitors are welcome year-round to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, the inspirational home of Georgia’s Trappist Monks. With more than 2,300 acres of contemplative space, the Monastery is less than an hour from Atlanta’s international airport. The new Monastic Heritage Center – a 17,000-square-foot, state-of-the-­art museum – is educational, interactive and kid-friendly. There is also a bonsai garden, store and cafe. At the Abbey Gift Shop, which is the largest Christian bookstore in Georgia, visitors can purchase monk-made biscotti, fruitcake and fudge, all of which the monks sell in an effort to be self-sustaining and feed the local poor. You can also see the Norman Gothic architecture of the Abbey Church and take a quiet stroll along the lake, or spend time in prayer and meditation.

Such a peaceful experience. Food prepared by monks was delicious. A vast array of gifts for every occasion, and the monk who assisted us was a pleasure to talk with, thoroughly explaining all products and interjecting a little 'homespun' wisdom a long the way. *Gwen,...More

I went to the Monastery because I needed some peace and quiet. I was upset over some personal matters. I walked the trail and I loved it. It was quiet, with a few other walkers, and perfect scenery. Please, just go!!!
