Eremos

Celebrating 25 Years of Contemplative Living – 25 Years of Helping People Experience More Peace, Compassion, Clarity, Love, and a Deeper Connection with the Divine.

On May 8th, 2021, Eremos officially turned 25 years old. We could not have made it this far in the life of our nonprofit without the support of our donors. Truly.

Because Eremos is not affiliated with any religious community or one method of contemplative prayer or meditation, grants from foundations and spiritual communities are difficult to come by. Despite this challenge, our gentle invitation to step back from daily distractions to rest in the silence in communion with God or the Divine continues to resonate with many.

With your financial support, we look forward to many more years of awakening and encouraging the gift of contemplation in the lives of people of all walks of life from around the country.

Thank you in advance for your anniversary gift (suggested donation of $25, $125, $250 or more*)

 

Eremos’ 25-Year History

Thousands served through spiritual direction, contemplative groups, book reflections, workshops, and inspiring presentations – all offered in the spirit of supporting your contemplative life.

Our History

1992:

Jean Springer arrived in Austin, Texas with a dream of providing a space within Austin in which people could be invited to listen to the Spirit dwelling within each of them and within the lives they live.

1995:

On retreat with a group of women called “Sisters of Diversity” the thought of becoming a non-profit organization was surfaced and from this conversation an Organizational Committee was formed to explore this vision.

1996:

We incorporated as Eremos with a four-member Board of Directors and received our status as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

2016:

Eremos celebrated its 20th anniversary, giving thanks for all of the men and women who have supported our mission through the years and have been part of this growing community.

2018:

Our founder and Spiritual Amma, Jean Springer, passed away on February 20th, 2018.

2018:

April 2nd, 2018, Eremos moved out of its home for over 20 years into its new office at 3355 Bee Caves Road, Ste. 101, Westlake Hills, TX 78746.

2020:

With the arrival of the pandemic, Eremos quickly pivoted to Zoom offerings. This transition enabled us to expand our community beyond our Central Texas home.
