Peace Tree Spirituality Center

heal, renew, connect, transform

Welcome!

Thank you for visiting the virtual home of Peace Tree Spirituality Center.  We exist to hold sacred space for individuals and groups to heal, renew, connect, and transform.  It does not matter who you are or where you come from, Peace Tree welcomes you regardless of faith tradition or personal spiritual formation.

Individual Retreats

Peace Tree Spirituality Center holds sacred space for you to settle into a slower pace, soak in the silence, and begin to feel and see more deeply.  We currently offer space for A Day Away.  Overnight accommodations are being updated and will be available in 2018.  During your stay you may wish to:

  • Walk our labyrinth
  • Meditate
  • Listen
  • Borrow a book from our spiritual library
  • Stroll the gardens and grounds

We offer opportunities to further personalize your retreat to nurture your body, mind, and soul with spiritual direction or massage therapy.

Social Change

At Peace Tree we grow deep roots and wide branches, transforming ourselves and our world.  We are committed to holding sacred space:

  • where change-makers renew and vision;
  • where we meet at the intersection of our differences;
  • and where oppressive structures are analyzed and dismantled.

 

 


Deep Roots, Wide Branches

Celebrate Summer Solstice at Peace Tree

Celebrate Summer Solstice at Peace Tree

In this moment of peak summer fire and light we gather in celebration at Peace Tree Spirituality Center Friday, June 22, beginning at 7 p.m.  We welcome our friend, Lizzie Salsich, to lead us in song and ritual.  As always, children are welcome!  Free will donation through PayPal or in person.

What to expect

Sweetness.  Summer sun.  Song.  Fire.  Warmth.  Light.  And Spirit moving in Her mysterious ways.

We will meet around the fire pit near the labyrinth.  The first part of the evening will fan the fire within through simple story, ritual, and sharing.  Afterward we will enjoy the evening air, bonfire, and each other.  We’ll savor s’mores and the fruits of Summer’s sun (berries and such).   Feel free to bring a snack to share.

What to bring

  • Benches surround the fire pit, but you may choose to bring a chair or a blanket to sit.
  • Bug spray
  • A snack to share (optional)
