1012 Monastery Road is the street address of St. Benedict's Monastery in Snowmass, Colorado. It is home to a group of Trappist monks among whose number are Thomas Keating, Joseph Boyle, and William Meninger- who with Keating is on e of the leading lights of the contemplative prayer movement-describes the foundations of the monastic and mystical traditions in the deserts of the Middle East and reveals the profound wisdom and startling insights of practices refined over many centuries. 

Meninger explores the meaning of community as well as the challenges and gifts that arise from the contemplative life. It is a life dedicated to opening one's heart to others and allowing Christ to enter the "inner room" of our soul- a place, like 1012 Monastery Road itself, where we are called upon to respond to God.
