I am a witness and this is my testimony:
that man can overcome death
and become God-like through God’s grace.

Welcome to the Ascetic Experience from Holy Mount Athos where we share all our everyday spiritual needs. Our problems in life are many and often times overwhelming; you are not alone.

Take your time, relax, and dig deeper with us. You will encounter unique photos from the Mount Athos, spiritual counsel and advice of the Holy Fathers and Mothers, wisdom from ancient and contemporary sages giving answers to your everyday problems. We are here for you and we’d love to know your thoughts and ideas.

The site is maintained by the Holy Monastery of Vatopedi, Mount Athos. The photos, unless noted, are from the monastery of Vatopedi or from our metochion of Saint Nikolaos at Porto Lagos, Xanthi.
