Transfiguration Hermitage in Windsor, Maine, USA, is a monastic community following the Rule of St. Benedict. We are dedicated to a life of prayer for the needs of all people and outreach to anyone seeking spiritual growth. This Benedictine life of prayer and solitude revolves around times of daily prayer together in chapel and our solitary prayer in the silence of our hermitage. We offer witness and opportunities of spiritual growth to others through retreats, workshops, courses, and spiritual direction. Like rain which nurtures the earth, causing plants to grow and giving food to all, this life of prayer is an invisible spring, pouring forth the grace of God's love to human hearts.
