From the Collegeville Institute blog




The Collegeville Institute has recently posted a piece that stands as something of a summary of why I find the music of John Coltrane so compelling. The Institute is one of the many creative initiatives of St John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota, and over the years has become something of my “go to” place for writing and retreats. Well over half of the first draft of my book was written during a sabbatical month in Collegeville in February 2011, and in fact my very first Coltrane-related writing was written for a 2008 summer writing workshop at the Institute.

Thanks to the Institute for all it has done to support and encourage my vocation as a writing priest!
