PEACE • PRAYER • PRODUCTIVITY
The Divine Office (TDO) is an ecumenical sacred co-working community for people who work independently, merging creative co-work space with monastic-style spirituality. The community nurtures the integration of God into our everyday lives, deepening relationships with God so that the divine moves towards the center of all that we do.
The Divine Office envelops the workday in prayer, upholding both work and worship as equally sacred. Each day begins in the chapel with a traditional morning prayer service. After worship the community blesses the workspace, shares their intentions for the day, and begins work. When the church bells chime at noon, everyone breaks for 15-minute meditation/prayer time together. The workday ends with a brief closing prayer service.
The Divine Office is a thriving new form of Christian community.
Inspired by ancient monastic-style spirituality and rooted in a modern rule of life, The Divine Office nurtures the sacred integration of work and worship.
The Divine Office serves as a crucible for the healing power of God’s love to nourish and transform us into life-giving agents of that Love and Light.
