God’s Garden

August 3, 2012

The geographic Mount Carmel that we take our Carmelite name from is a mountain range along the Mediterranean in Israel. It is a green oasis surrounded by desert; hence, its name “Carmel,” which means “the Garden of God” in Hebrew. The metaphorical Carmel is a way of life, our disposition as we make our spiritual path up Mount Carmel.

The images and insights presented here represent a small sampling of what has bloomed in “God’s Garden” over the course of our 800-year existence. Welcome to our Carmelite garden; we hope you are nourished by what grows here and invite you to comment and share it with others.

    I am so enjoying the moments of Disconnect. I meditate every morning but I see your site after work when I’m tired from the long drive–not the work–that’s with God’s sea creatures in the Discovery Pool and God’s beauty in the salt marsh walks both at the Oceanarium in Bar Harbour, Maine. I started the Disconnect with three minutes, then five and I’ve just done the ten-minute one and it went by so fast! Thank you for this site and God bless you and the work of Carmel.
