        Trappist monks are unlikely practitioners of successful business management. American entrepreneur and corporate executive, August Turak, however, knows their secrets. After all, he’s lived. Commentary: Still hearing the bells of Brother Nicholas from the Huntsville Abbey He is writing a book about his adventures growing up with the Huntsville Trappist monks.

      This book of precepts is the formative inspiration for Trappist life and a guide for ordering our daily existence. It describes important concepts, such as obedience, silence and humility. It suggests ways to handle sacred practices and everyday tasks. And it helps define roles, relationships and expectations for those living in community. The Trappists, officially known as the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance and originally named the Order of Reformed Cistercians of Our Lady of La Trappe, are a Catholic religious order of cloistered monastics that branched off from the Cistercians. They follow the Rule of Saint Benedict and have communities of both monks and nuns that are known as Trappists and Trappistines, respectively. Founded at: La Trappe Abbey.
