What we're about

We are a group dedicated to sharing spiritual practices, wisdom, and connection with other contemplatives, seekers and modern mystics. We believe that it is possible to integrate ecstatic union with the Beloved into our daily lives, even for us “householders” living in the stress of our fast-paced world. We don’t have to be cloistered in a monastery or meditating in a cave in the Himalayas to have a sustained connection with the Divine. Through our longing and dedication, we will find our way back home to union, healing, and peace - it’s as close as our next breath!

Our classes combine ancient spiritual practices with the insights of modern psychology to help open a space inside of us and allow for profound experiences of this inner source of peace. Classes are open to all, and we respect all spiritual traditions and religions. For those seeking a deeper connection with the Divine, we offer an initiatory path towards enlightenment based on the mystery teachings of the Christian tradition.
We currently offer all classes and services online. Although we will continue to do so, we look forward to fostering in-person community in our beautiful New Haven meditation center and chapel after the pandemic.
Come journey with us!

Making Peace with Yourself- Parts Work as a Spiritual Practice

If you have ever struggled with feeling like you are at war with yourself, this is the course for you. Many people find that they treat themselves in ways that they would never treat another person. They are hypercritical of themselves, invalidating, and unable to consistently treat themselves with compassion and kindness. If this sounds familiar, this course is for you.

You will learn to identify your inner parts, then build self-compassion and inner harmony.

Fans of inner-child work and IFS will likely enjoy this fresh take on Parts-work.

This Course is limited in size to ensure a personal approach. Register now to reserve your spot. |
