Community Schedule

Community is at the core of our spiritual path. We house a small residential community made up of sincere spiritual seekers, dedicated to cultivating peace, and united in the healing work of love. We desire to unveil the mystical in the everyday and develop a daily practice that brings us into deep communion with our neighbors, the earth, and our Creator. Our services, liturgies, yoga, and meditations are open to everyone. But during this time of physical distancing, to slow the spread of coronavirus, you are invited to join us only by livestream on instagram or by zoom and not in person. Each week a different member of the community leads centering prayer and midday meditation. Sunday services are led by Fr. Aidan. Yoga is led by Erin King of The Balanced Kinesphere

Community rule of life

We are a contemplative community of...

 

Love - Love is who we are; the very life force that animates the universe. It is a path of acceptance, respecting the dignity of every human being. Through love we participate in the ongoing creation of the universe. 

 

Healing - We are called to the lifelong journey of healing ourselves, each other, and the world; reconnecting our spirits and moving through brokenness toward wholeness. 

 

Simplicity - We strive for simplicity of life, being conscious of our impact on this community and Mother Earth by taking only what we need and giving back with gratitude.

 

Reverence - We embrace the fullness of the human experience, perceiving the Divine Beauty as a reality beyond words flowing through all things, celebrating the sacred in both the silly and the mundane.

 

Trust - We live in faith that all things work towards the good of the whole. We offer curiosity and compassion when we do not understand another’s journey and remind ourselves that we are all students and teachers on life’s path.

 

Peace - We live as instruments of peace, following the path from contemplation to action,  moving from stillness within towards reconciliation in our community and the world. 

 

Humility - We remember that we are dust of the earth, animated by Divine breath. We are rooted in reciprocity and grounded in this place, learning to love and experience our connection to all things.
