Experience Serenity At Kirkridge
A unique experience for all.
At Kirkridge, you can experience the kind of peace and thoughtful reflection that is becoming increasingly rare to find in our fast-paced, modern world.
On the mountain, you can nurture your spirit and learn how to care for yourself and your community in meaningful, productive, and tender ways. Everyone is welcome here, to our home, to gently reconnect with what really matters to you.
May we always be people of hope, who give with open arms and caution thrown to the wind - In my time, energy, and money given to Kirkridge, I have felt repaid, tenfold. I hope you have felt the same.

Kirkridge and sanctuary are synonymous terms. A sanctuary is a place of safety where the sacred reveals itself, where people gather and the Spirit vitalizes and renews the earth once more. Kirkridge is such a place, a place where non-violence becomes credible and possible, a place which people experience as a home, a place of joy and festivity, healing and hope, vulnerability and courage.
