a center of contemplative life

(Eh-RAY-moes)
Greek word meaning solitary place, quiet place, desert place

We seek to provide contemplative opportunities for people of all faith traditions and all walks of life to step back from the hectic pace of life and reconnect to their Source.

Welcome to Eremos,
a contemplative community without walls

We help people from all walks of life step back from daily distractions to reconnect with God or the Divine (however they define Source) through a wide variety of programs, spiritual direction, and reflections. We invite you to explore this website thoroughly to get a sense of who we are and all we have to offer.

If you’re not sure if a program is right for you, please call us at 512-276-2649 or fill out this contact form on the website. Someone will get back to you promptly to help you discern the ideal entry point into Eremos.

“Finding the Eremos community was finding part of who I am to be in the world. From reading the newsletter, to participating in programs, retreats, ongoing groups, and even as a board member, Eremos is the challenge that keeps me awake and supports me as I work to live as a spiritual being in this physical body and world.”
– Founding Friend of Eremos

The generosity of donors like you enables Eremos to offer inspiring programs and reflections (via e-newsletters) for people of all faith traditions to help them remember and deepen their connection to Source, as they define or describe the Divine.

WHO WE ARE

New to Contemplation?

To be contemplative is to enter a quiet in which every aspect of our humanness becomes still in response to the stillness within God, the Divine, or however you define the Source of all that is.

In the spaciousness created within the Eremos community, you are gently invited to behold the Mystery of God. As you rest in moments of silence in community, burdens are lightened, clarity comes, and compassion for yourself and others is reawakened.

Whether you choose to accept our invitation via spiritual direction, a workshop, retreat or monthly on-going small group, you are welcome here.

We invite you to step back from the busyness of life. Spaciousness, clarity, connection, and peace are just a few of the gifts that await you in our contemplative community without walls.

MONTHLY CONTEMPLATIVE GROUPS

Exploring your relationship with the Divine…

Experience the benefits of connecting to and exploring your relationship with the Divine in the company of a small group of fellow travelers on the contemplative path. You’re welcome to join one or more of the following groups.

Benedict’s Way An Exploration Of A Way Of Being In The World

Contemplative Mornings with Leslie Wagner
MEETS LAST SATURDAY OF EVERY OTHER MONTH IN PERSON

Reflections

Seeking a Joyful July…

With our 2023 theme of Facets of Joy, we sparked joy throughout the month of July. As the intensity of the election year and the heat of summer 2024 rachet up, it feels appropriate―even necessary―to seek more joy this July too.

More Tranquil Moments…

“Hours of tranquility,” the nature video promised in its title. Ahh…

Be Human Together…

Often described as the second Independence Day, we celebrate Juneteenth tomorrow to commemorate the ending of slavery in our country.
