Abbey Church Essene is a plant-based and vegan church founded by Reverend Pastor Martha A. Muehe, DD, who developed a spiritual practice based partly on “The Essene Gospel of Peace” and “From Enoch to the Dead Sea Scrolls” by Edmond Bordeaux Szekely.

We say our communions (mantras) and peace contemplation in the present tense for immediate realization, “I am” means “I am the embodiment of” or “I am one with”, but shortened for ease.

“I am earth, sun, air, water, fruit, life, joy.”
“I am love, peace, strong, wise, creative, eternal, universe.”
“I am peace in mind, body, family, society, culture, earth, universe.”
