Cyprian Consiglio, OSB Cam

Cyprian Consiglio is a monk of the Camaldolese Congregation, musician, composer, writer and teacher. He lived for ten years and did his monastic formation at New Camaldoli Hermitage in Big Sur, where he served as liturgist, choir director and teacher.

Cyprian currently lives near Santa Cruz, California; he spends about half his time at home, and half his time on the road performing and teaching. Much of both his music and his teaching revolve around the Universal Call to Contemplation through spirituality and the arts. Along with his six collections of original music recorded and published through OCP, he released three others through the Equilibrium label with his longtime collaborator, percussionist John Pennington. The Equilibrium collections are titled Awakening, The Song of Luke and Compassionate and Wise. Another collection to his credit is Wait, My Soul, In Silence, music for meditation created in collaboration with Laurence Freeman for MedioMedia.  Listen to some samples here.

Cyprian earned his MA in Theology from St John’s Seminary in Camarillo, CA. A student of the writings of Bede Griffiths and Abhishiktananda, Cyprian has a great love for comparative religion, has done work in inter-faith ritual and world music, regularly leads conferences on meditation, and has been to India and other countries in Asia several times, both studying and teaching. He has written numerous articles and is currently working on a book on prayer and meditation.  Learn more at www.cyprianconsiglio.com.
