similar to monastic living..giving up worldy goods/materialism, denying one's personal wants desires..possibly in a communical setting (monastery, monks, sisterhood)
Or as a hermit. Generally speaking living an ascetic life means giving up everything that isn't necessary to survival & limiting what is necessary in order to focus all of your attention on spiritual endeavors.
