Community Schedule

Community is at the core of our spiritual path. We have 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, we encourage you 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 lead by Fr. Aidan. Yoga is lead by Erin King of The Balanced Kinesphere
