Monastery 2.0

Synopsis: Monasteries are closing their doors all over the country. Young people seek quieter lives but few of them find value in our monastic traditions. Mepkin Abbey, a dying Trappist monastery in South Carolina, which once hosted as many as 55 monks and is now down to 15 with an average age of 77, is opening its doors to the public in ways previously forbidden to maintain age-old traditions in a rapidly evolving world.
