Retreats and Programs
In October of 2020 we celebrated 40 years of spiritual deepening. Though we celebrate the rich history of people, events, growth, and experiences that have occurred here, spiritual deepening has always been our passion and mission. We are humbled and grateful for the many ways this has emerged on this sacred ground these last 40 years.
Offering private retreats and programs that cultivate the needed space for spiritual growth and realization to occur, we strive to bring you experiences that meet the needs of the times and the soul.
A personal retreat has transforming power, offering deep and lasting benefits. If you have made an intention to deepen your spiritual life with soul work and reconnect with the divine, a personal retreat provides a sacred space for transformation to occur.
If you want to relax, get away from it all, have room to breathe and find some peace and calm, find solitude for painting or writing, a personal retreat can help you return home refreshed and replenished.

While you are doing this quiet reflective inner work, it might be helpful to have a companion to process your experience with you. Our experienced and wise spiritual companions stand ready to be that partner in spiritual growth.
Traveling life on a spiritual path can be confusing, clarifying, daunting, inviting, and at times lonely. 2020 has been a most unprecedented year… filled with unknowns. The social isolation demanded of us by the Covid-19 pandemic has challenged the familiarity and reliance of close relationships with loved ones and members of our communities.
How do we deal with challenges in our life and spiritual paths, which often are magnified in times of uncertainty? Life is filled with uncertainties: growth and change, work-life balance, grief and loss, and decisions about next steps or choosing a new path forward. Engaging in spiritual guidance can offer support and companionship, as we seek to deepen our connection with the divine, or achieve clarity concerning a specific life circumstance or experience.
Different from therapy, spiritual guidance is a contemplative practice of accompanying a person as they awaken to the spiritual in everyday life. A Christine Center spiritual companion listens compassionately with unconditional love as your story unfolds through a mutual process of discernment, while inner peace, self-direction, and self-acceptance begin to unfold. We welcome everyone, people of all faiths and no faith, and of all spiritual paths.
Whether you seek a spiritual companion for one or several sessions or choose to select a Christine Center guide for your retreat, or journey we are here to support you.
Retreat programs offer unique opportunity to deepen your spiritual practice. Immersing in process and ritual within a group provides a supportive container to hold the deep experience that emerges when we open ourselves to spiritual practice and exploration. Here at the Christine Center, we strive to offer diverse opportunities so that all may find a retreat experience to deepen and nourish their practice.
