Holy Meeting Ground

Anthology of Shalem’s First Twenty Years

by Connie Clark

In the spring of 1973, a handful of seekers came together for a retreat. A weekly contemplative prayer group grew out of this retreat. A community of pilgrims was born and given the name “Shalem,” a Hebrew word meaning wholeness. This is the story of Shalem’s first 20 years, told in the voices of those who have gathering in this graced community.
