Greek word meaning solitary place, quiet place, desert place
We seek to provide 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. In the spaciousness created within the Eremos community, you are gently invited to behold the Mystery of God within all that is. As you open to the awareness that you are a unique expression of God within the world, burdens are lightened, clarity comes, and compassion for yourself and others is reawakened.
One description of prayer is “Stand before God with your head on your heart.” At Eremos, we invite each member of our community to “rest your head on the heart of God within you.” We don’t teach technique or method. We invite you to come in and experience. While some contemplative groups focus on the mind, at Eremos we accentuate the heart.
Whether you choose to accept our invitation via a solitary pause at our contemplative center, spiritual direction, a small support group, an offsite program, or a retreat, you are welcome here.

The Eremos Mission
Eremos invites persons to come and behold the mystery of God dwelling within. From the intimacy of this communion they are empowered to live and love others.
Eremos is contemplative. It honors the movement within each person to be lovingly attentive to God whose love is attentive to each of us.
