Monks Inside Out (book)


14 in stock



An intimate, behind the scenes look at the Roman Catholic monks of New Camaldoli Hermitage. You will find yourself unable to stop as, page after page, the stunning photography of Kayleigh Meyers captures the spirit and humanity of our monks and the breathtaking beauty of Big Sur and the cloistered structures of New Camaldoli Hermitage that the public rarely gets to see.

“Monks Inside Out” strives (and achieves) to portray the essence of each monk’s personality and the story behind what brought them to a hermetic life in the remote mountains of Big Sur at a place called New Camaldoli Hermitage.  This 158 page lovingly written and photographed book is a snapshot in time at a timeless place.  

This paperback book was expensive to produce and print, thus we must ask a higher price. We could only afford to acquire a limited number of copies from the publisher.  When supplies run out, we will investigate the possibility of self-publishing the book to bring the price down, but there is no guarantee we will be able to do this.

Due to the well-publicized storms that have damaged the California Central Coast roadway system, we are unable to ship items from the Hermitage at this time, because of road closures. We will reopen this online shop once the roads open up and delivery trucks are able to reach us. We do not have an estimated time for this; it depends on Mother Nature and the progress of road repairs. Please check back here on a weekly basis for any updates. We thank you for your support and prayers. Since we are unable to welcome guests here during this road closure, our main source of supporting ourselves has been taken away. If you care to make a tax-deductible donation to help, your gift, large or small, would be received with gratitude and thanks. Please go to to learn more on how to donate. Blessings to you.
