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.

I have taught and learned in many places, but rarely at the depths that open time and again at Kirkridge. I could name many reasons why – a faithful history, an exquisite setting, a risk-taking mission, a gifted staff. But it is more in Kirkridge spirit to say, simply, that the place is a giving and a gift, and I am grateful.

The deeper our faith, the more doubt we must endure; the deeper our hope, the more prone we are to despair; the deeper our love, the more pain its loss will bring: these are a few of the paradoxes we must hold as human beings. If we refuse to… (more)

Kirkridge Testimonials

See what our wonderful guests have to say about their experiences with us here. Whether it was a retreat, event or wedding, we are so grateful for them to share such kind words about us.

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.
