Contemplative Practices

Experience the Contemplative Life

Our beautifully inlaid 19-foot walking labyrinth holds space for our community’s contemplative practices.  These forms invite greater moral awareness, creativity, energy, wisdom and compassion, with a deepening celebration of humanity.   We have both in-residence and visiting teachers joining our community.
