We are dedicated to supporting anyone in their search for God, meaning and wholeness. We invite you to explore our many offerings: individual and group compassionate listening, daylong programs, guided and preached retreats, mind-body-spirit classes, opportunities for creative expression, meeting room space for organizations, hermitage stays and an innovative training program for spiritual directors.
