The universal Monk  is about the monk in all of us. in today’s fast paced and often fractured culture we seek inner peace and unity. The universal Monk  is a powerful way for everyone of any state of life to find it. It is written from John Michael experience in public international ministry and as founder and spiritual father of the brothers and sisters of charity, a new integrated monastic community of celibates, singles who can marry, and families who live in an integrated monastery or in their homes.
