Contemplative Retreat

Centering Porch welcomes guests who come on spiritual retreat. To assure your privacy, we take no more than two guests at one time for a spiritual retreat and they must register together. We offer quiet, sacred space for spiritual practice and solitude. Please let us know if you wish to have a silent retreat. Follow the pathways through oak savannah to the water’s edge. Absorb the wisdom of ancient trees. Explore the gardens and farmscape. Delight in enough birds to make your heart sing. Guests can also relax in indoor space including two sitting rooms, private bath and kitchen. Two porches, east and west, are exclusively yours. Centering Porch is nondenominational. All who come in peace are welcome.
