Shalem Programs

Shalem provides a variety of programs to support contemplative living and leadership.

  • Share a contemplative orientation—an open willingness to be present to God in the moment;

  • Offer resources for listening and responding authentically to God;

  • Encourage the personal spiritual practices to which individuals are called;

  • Provide various forms of ecumenical spiritual formation experiences.


The Spiritual Guidance Program, the Leading Contemplative Prayer Groups & Retreats Program, the Clergy Spiritual Life & Leadership Program and Personal Spiritual Deepening Program are designed for people who desire in-depth support for their lives and ministries and vary between 3 months and 18 months in length.  To learn more about any of these programs, click on the name of the program below or on the left hand side bar. 

Shalem also offers day-long and weekend events, as well as groups that meet regularly for spiritual renewal, deepening, and sharing in mutual spiritual community.  Our day-long events allow you to experience God's Presence in the midst of a busy life, while our retreats and groups offer a more sustained experience of living in the Presence.

Shalem also offers spiritual pilgrimages in selected sites both inside and outside the US. This year we will be traveling to Iona.
