a center of contemplative life
Greek word meaning solitary place, quiet place, desert place
We seek to provide contemplative 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.
Our Featured Programs
Art, Play, Love: An Expansive Exploration of Play with Arts, Crafts, Writing, Music with Brooks Kasson
To find your naturally inquisitive and creative center, we’ll begin with a bit of group structure in a no-judgment setting. After that, you’ll have time with your favorite medium to create on your own. We’ll return to the group to share (if you choose) and to celebrate our flowing creativity.
Being with the Divine in These Times of Uncertainty
We are excited to announce Pastor John Garland as our next spiritual leader participating in this series. In a 90-minute presentation, Pastor John will share the profound impact singing and praying the Psalms has had on both the parishioners and the asylum-seekers they serve at the San Antonio Mennonite Church. Come be with us as Pastor John invites us to consider the Psalms as a blueprint for healing trauma and a pathway for transformation.
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.”
Whatever your faith tradition, navigating this holiday season might feel like moving through an obstacle course. Opportunities for sadness, grief, and disconnection at the losses of the year and uncertainty...
