An Exploration Of A Way Of Being In The World
Third Wednesday of Each Month
In a fast paced, conflictual world, it is difficult to find an anchor that keeps us centered on what is most important and draws us to live in ways that are personally authentic, intentional, compassionate and spiritually sustaining. This on-going Eremos offering provides an opportunity to explore the rich tradition of Benedictine spirituality as a way to enrich the spiritual depth and meaning of our lives and as a guide to everyday living.
Contemplative Creativity Circle
Sr. Marie Angele Sanchez
First Saturday of Each Month
The creative process offers a path where, just beneath the surface of artistic endeavor, the rhythm of prayer unfolds: senses awaken, mind focuses, heart opens & soul bestows her gifts. COME CREATE, REFLECT, RESPOND!
Contemplative Men’s Group
Deep camaraderie, open communication.
Third Thursday of Each Month
So often, men feel compelled to “go it alone”. It is part of our upbringing and identity. But we also have a competing call to community, to companionship on the journey … a place where we can describe our vision, acknowledge our fears, accept grief and heal wounds. Our men’s 90-minute gatherings offer an atmosphere of confidentiality, trust and acceptance where men can find a sense of mutual accountability in a regular time dedicated to community and contemplative practice.
Pondering The News
A Spiritual Way to Reframe Daily News in the time of the Pandemic and Beyond
Second Sunday of Each Month
Can we find a way to reframe our personal news consumption as a spiritual practice that strengthens our lives, reminds us we’re not alone, and gives us hope for the future? Eremos invites you to join us virtually to explore the possibility of reclaiming peace within ourselves through a contemplative response that turns the daily news that bombards our hearts and minds from a toxin to a tonic.
Sisters Contemplative Morning
Second Saturday of Each Month
This program attracts women desiring to experience the benefits of extended periods of silence in the company of other kindred souls. Participants gather for an hour of silence for personal prayer, meditation, or journaling to start the morning. Women from the circle take turns facilitating each session. The chosen reflection honors the intuition of the facilitator, as she discerns which poem or passage from a book will be used during her session. Afterwards, each woman is invited (never required) to share insights, life stories, & concerns.
Third Sunday of Each Month
Eremos invites you to an opportunity to nourish your soul in these times of change and to support any contemplative practices you may have. Come sooth your spirit and connect virtually, as we support one another through these unprecedented days.
