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.

Coming Out of the Pandemic

We are a community. We hold you, your loved ones, and our world in our collective hearts and prayers. Despite the ups and downs we have all dealt with since the blessed arrival of vaccines, we continue to hold the vision for the world to emerge stronger and more united for the challenges facing us now. Thank you for joining us in this vision.

As we prepare for our 2022 events, we anticipate a mix of Zoom and in person programs. We will begin the year with primarily Zoom programs, but our Women’s Retreat in February and some of our Book Reflection groups will gather in person. We hope to see you either on screen or in person soon.

Please join us in offering hope and healing to all hearts, minds, and souls through this extended time of challenge and change in the world. Thank you for being part of our contemplative community without walls.

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.
