Welcome to our contemplative community without walls
We invite you to explore this website thoroughly to get a sense of who we are and what we have to offer.
If you feel contemplation is outside the realm of your experience, you might want to read our Frequently Asked Questions About Contemplation located in our Resources section.
Depending upon your needs, you might desire to first experience a one-on-one spiritual direction session, a morning or afternoon mini-retreat, or a workshop.
If you’re not sure if a program is right for you, please call us at 512-276-2649 or fill out this contact form on the website and someone will get back to you promptly to help you discern the ideal entry point into Eremos.
In those moments when you seek solitude, silence, connection or intimacy within your life, you are living Eremos – the desert of your heart.
What does it mean to be a “Contemplative Community Without Walls”?
As mentioned above, our center is small and our community members are located throughout central Texas. We believe we co-create the contemplative spaciousness wherever we are. There is no rule, no form that you have to follow, no obligations nor demands that will ‘wall you in’. And, community members can connect to the Eremos experience without ever setting foot in our center.
How do I become a member of the Eremos community?
The easiest way is to sign up for our newsletter (sent out twice-weekly) or participate in any program. Once you provide us with your contact information, you’re officially in! We don’t share any of your contact information with any other organizations.
Are you a nonprofit organization?
Yes, we are a 501 (c) 3 registered charitable organization which means any donations made to support the work of this organization are tax deductible. Charitable support enables us to offer programs at a reduced cost and to provide scholarships to those in need.
Where are you located?
Our center is located at 3355 Bee Cave Road Ste 101, West Lake Hills, TX 78746.
As you can imagine, our space is limited, so we only offer spiritual direction and small group programs here regularly. We partner with other Austin and San Antonio area churches and community centers to offer much of our programming.
