here’s something nice and peaceful for you on this fine Thursday. i discovered the work of photographed Kari Medig, whose wonderful snowy photographs i was intending to feature, when i saw this story he photographer about an order of nuns who live in the wilderness of British Columbia. a bit of googling later and i found the original article about the Queen of Peace monastery in Coast Mountain Culture magazine – read it here.

Deep in the Squamish Valley, the Catholic nuns of Queen of Peace Monastery followed their god into the mountains. But who are these women living in habitual peace far from the city? Meet an ex-national Nordic ski racer, Tanzanian sisters and the Canadian West Coast nuns who practice their religion where most recreate.


  1. I went to boarding school in the south of France with the same nuns (Dominican). These photographs brought me beautiful souvenirs. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I absolutely love Kari Medigs work. The photo of the two women on the field is so magical. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Big fan of your blog and all of your tips! I’d like to give you my own… I always buy from this store in Brazil, they have handmade products made by craftsmen in small cities all over the country, all put together in one store. They also have a brick and mortar store in a beach city called Trancoso, this is their website: Hope you all like it just as much as I do! =)

  4. This is beautiful I had no idea this beautiful place existed, and it is my own country.

  5. I literally just found a copy of this magazine in my neighbourhood Little Free Library today! Now i’m excited to delve in and read this article! :)

  6. Love these pics. Nuns have amazing sense of aesthetics. In their clothes and in their interiors. It’s fascinating!
