Our Programs

Explore our programs and see which one fits your needs at this time. Get in touch with us if you feel you need to be guided in your spiritual walk.
Our courses are an extended period of organized study in line with the spirit of formation. Our objective is to equip the participant, in the psychospiritual approach to embrace the spiritual disciplines, in the attempt to deepen their walk with God.

Our Retreats are based on the Ignatian method of recollection. It incorporates silence, with a rhythm of prayer, art expressions as form of expressing what is happening in us in prayer. It also include accompaniment with a spiritual director who helps deepen what is already
happening in the prayer time of the retreatant.

What do you call spiritual practices that do not fit in with courses and retreats, to
me it was obvious- retreats plus of course. During pandemic we were required to meet the needs of our participants. 

Mamita's Corner

Eco Divina is praying with nature. It is a creative way of connecting with God especially when we are in a beautiful landscape—along the sea, in a park, or in the woods.
A year ago this month of October, God answered one of our prayers about creating a space where the alumni of our spiritual formation programs and some attendees of our past retreats can come together and engage in a safe and soulful sharing.
We are entering into the veil where the Arc of the Covenant (The tabernacle of the Ancient temple of Jerusalem)resides.
