We create a qualitative moment in which we become silent for a moment and share a part of our experience with each other. Each in his or her way: by telling something, by listening, by a piece of music, by an image... Being present is sufficient, everyone can take the floor, but you don't have to.

Kaaitheater and Atheneum Brussels cordially invite you to an arrival ritual, which is the latest stage of the RE:RITE of passage programme. Are you curious to see how the students are throwing the doors of Brussels wide open? Come along for a bowl of warm soup and an equally warm welcome.

Fri 09.03 - Sat 10.03.18

The Monastery is returning to the Kaaistudios – which has become a familiar environment – for a special, two-day event. This time, A-LIFE combines the celebration of spring with the queerness of practice during an experimental monastic happening for women, men, and those who have left this binary far behind. Expect a monastic day in silence – with the occasional rave – in which you deconstruct and deepen the aesthetics of the monk.

For the second time this season, The Monastery is coming to the Kaaistudios with A-LIFE, a ritual day that is patterned to the rhythm of the seasons. This time, the urban monks guide you through the transition from autumn to winter.

Wed 25.10 - Fri 27.10.17

In Buddhist monasteries, people learn through meditation to look at life from the perspective of their own mortality. Robert Steijn has turned this meditative practice into a ritual. Together, you will walk around the city, as though you were taking this walk for the last time.

In the whirlwind of work, relationships, deadlines and discussions, we sometimes get distracted from the most important things in life: feeling alive and being conscious of our entire being and everything around you. The Monastery is an experimental spiritual urban community that aims to do exactly that: by performing daily rituals and making every action an intense experience.
