The Monastery of Christ in the Desert
website; photo gallery; some chants
The monastery, located in Abiquiu, New Mexico, is featured in an American reality series, The Monastery, which is based on the BBC reality series of the same name. (The BBC series was done at Worth Abbey and had a follow-up, plus a "spin-off," The Convent, which was done with the Poor Clares of Arundel.) The American series will premiere on October 22 on The Learning Channel.
