Come experience 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.
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.
Have you experienced the gentle, supportive, transformational gifts of Eremos?
In a world that does not support the contemplative life, we believe that people at all stages of life and work and financial circumstances should be able to receive the contemplative support of our community regardless of their ability to pay. With the generous support of those who are able to fund scholarships, we’re often able to provide a partial scholarship to attend one of our programs or to experience spiritual direction. You’ll see a scholarship button below every “Register Here” button. Simply click on it, fill out a brief form that will go directly to our Spiritual Director’s inbox (no one else will see your confidential request). We’ll do our utmost to accommodate you.
The Eremos morning retreat in the beauty of God’s creation helped me remember who I am and how I want to live. What a gift this has been for me.

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.
