What we offer...
We believe people need centering work to prepare them for their work in the world. Our programs are rooted in the deep, contemplative Christian tradition, yet open to, and draw from, all forms faith and secular study. Whether you consider yourself a member of a spiritual tradition or a “solo” seeker, you are welcome at Stillpoint.
If you’re in need of soul care for yourself or looking for spiritual friends to journey with you, we hope you’ll consider attending one of our experiential retreats. See Our Calendar →
