Cranaleith offers a contemplative space for all those seeking wholeness and transformation for themselves and society. We are committed to making Cranaleith accessible to all, especially to persons who are poor and those who work in solidarity with them. We seek to invite those at the center of need and those at the center of influence to reflection, reverent dialogue and meaningful partnerships. We extend a warm welcome to persons of every faith, culture and circumstance who wish to deepen their spiritual journey, and to organizations whose purposes are consistent with the ethos of the Center.
Sponsored Retreats and Programs
These retreats offer guided prayer, meditations related to the retreat theme, input from the presenters, and an opportunity to share with other retreatants.
Work & Spirit Series
Regardless of the program offering, participants have the opportunity to explore, from their own experience, what humanizes the workplace, honors the human spirit, and frees people to do their best work, from a sense of integrity and larger purpose.
In-depth exploration of the challenging dynamics they face in their work roles. Using an active and collaborative format for learning, these programs provide experienced leaders with an invaluable resource: protected time, stimulating content, and a supportive group of peers for thinking, planning, and restoration of their vision and energies.
Directed retreats offer an experience grounded in solitude, silence, prayer and daily meetings with a spiritual director. Directed retreats call for receptivity to the movements of the spirit and are adapted to the needs of each individual.
Sabbaticals and Private Retreats
Our sabbaticals and private retreats are designed to respond to each person’s need and yearning for solitude; relationship with the natural world; peace; and enrichment through rest, renewal and reflection.
For those who would like to meet with a qualified spiritual director, who serves as a listener, companion and guide, are welcome to arrange for spiritual direction with a staff member at a mutually convenient time.
Spiritual Direction Formation
Cranaleith’s new Education & Conference Center can accommodate groups up to 100 for meetings and meals. Staff members are available to design a retreat in response to your group’s needs. Groups are also welcome to bring their own presenter or facilitator. Rates are negotiated, depending on the size and nature of the group.
