New to Contemplation?
In the spaciousness created within the Eremos community, you are gently invited to behold the Mystery of God. As you rest in moments of silence in community, burdens are lightened, clarity comes, and compassion for yourself and others is reawakened.
Whether you choose to accept our invitation via spiritual direction, a workshop, retreat or monthly on-going small group, you are welcome here.
In These Uncertain Times May We Uplift Each Other Virtually
As a contemplative community, we know the soul nourishment that occurs when we drop out of our heads into the silence of our hearts to be with God, the Divine, the Holy One, or whatever name you call Source. We invite you to pause often to take a deep breath, drop into the silence, and find the peace that passes all understanding.
We are a community. We hold you, your loved ones, and our world in our collective hearts and prayers. And, we hold the vision and space for healing to come and for the world to emerge stronger and more united for the challenges facing us now. Thank you for joining us in this vision.
May we all come together virtually to offer hope and healing to all hearts, minds, and souls. Thank you for being part of our contemplative community without walls.

“I truly don’t know where I’d be today without Eremos where I can find a few moments of silence and sanity in this hectic world.”
