The Artist • David Plant
David is one of three artists I business mentor.
He asked me to take him to Abbey of New Clairvaux.
"The Sacred Stones project is the reconstruction of an 800 year old Chapter House from a Cistercian monastery in Ovila, Spain. Considered the most important room in a monastery, this historic structure is being rebuilt at the Abbey of New Clairvaux in Vina, California.
After a journey of thousands of miles and taking nearly 80 years, new life is being breathed into these stones. Their new home, a community in the fertile soil of the Sacramento Valley, seems an unlikely place for such a magnificent building.
We invite you to explore the rich history of the Chapter House and the Abbey of New Clairvaux. Join people from around the world who have become supporters of our project and share a common belief that these stones are, indeed, sacred."
