is a joint project established between Ealing Abbey and NAOS-Institute during 2104. The agreement began on a formal level when NAOS-Institute assumed a one year lease on the first floor of 3 Montpelier Avenue, a property of Ealing Abbey in March 2014.

Centre for Integral Humanism

We are inspired by Pope Francis’ message at the ‘Meeting with the Brasilian Leaders, Rio de Janeiro, 27 July 2013, reported in L’Osservatore Romano, Monday-Tuesday 29-30 July 2013, 4, when he announced that, “authentic culture … promotes an integral humanism and the culture of encounter and relationship (Rejoice!, CTS London 2014, 38).

It is intended that together Ealing Abbey and NAOS shall develop programmes in collaboration with other organisations that will enhance adult learning at Ealing Abbey, particularly in the areas of psychology, safeguarding, self-awareness, serving all faith communities and leadership through people.

We have already worked together to offer the one year Diploma in Group Facilitation, Conflict Resolution, Community Building and Leadership Skills from March 2015 to February 2016.

We are (December 2015) working onimages-3 the next adult study programme in this collaboration.

A further adult study programme embraces the Generative Communities Experiences

Centre for Integral Humanism

By serving society and the church we intend to give new expressions to our Benedictine charism and vocation.

By working with experts in secular fields the monks wish to:

explore and recover ancient traditions of monastic life –
assist people of different cultures and faith perspectives –
explore different spiritual traditions –
safely learn from our human experience –
live the eternal values embodied in the lives and communities of our monastic forebears.
