Our work shares the gifts of the Christian contemplative tradition by forming persons and communities who can meet the social and ecological challenges of our world with generosity, courage and commitment.

Our methodology re-imagines the Christian contemplative tradition and connects it to the spiritual needs of young seekers who often don’t identify with any religious tradition (Spiritual But Not Religious).

Contemplation on the Streets

Responding to neighbors in need as well as systemic injustice has been at the core of our commitment to engaged contemplation. We have brought food to the hungry in Hempstead and we have brought contemplative practice to inmates at Nassau Correctional Center.
