Do you have a hunger for a more deeply rooted spiritual life?  Are you seeking answers to the perennial questions of life? Would you like to live in a slower, more contemplative manner?  If so, then consider participating in the Genesis School for Contemplative Living.  Our third cohort will begin in September 2020.  

The Genesis School for Contemplative Living is a formation program for the contemplative journey, rooted in the Christian wisdom tradition in an emerging, interspiritual, ecological and socially engaged framework. 

During five residential weekends between September 2020 and May 2021, learning is both intellectual and experiential, nourishing both the head and the heart for the transformational journey. Between residential weekends, learning continues through a commitment to daily practice, group meetings or video calls, and study.
