Timeless wisdom from a spiritual master

Thomas Merton was a monk and bestselling author who remains a soul friend to countless men and women. With your Merton Talks subscription, you’ll have the rare chance to experience one of the most powerful parts of his legacy: the talks he delivered during the 1960s—many available to the public for the first time ever.

A new talk every week

Recorded at the Abbey of Our Lady of Gethsemani and during Merton’s travels throughout the world, these talks reveal his wit and wisdom. For just $7 a month, you’ll receive a new track on MP3 each week. That’s $1.75—less than a cup of coffee—for a talk you can cherish forever.

Our curated collection spans hundreds of recordings. Most talks are 35 minutes long; some are an hour or more. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll get with your Merton Talks subscription.
