Kavanna House

Kavanna House is a non-profit spiritual formation center designed to offer individuals the means to move into deeper intimacy with God through contemplative practices.

Kavanna is a Hebrew word meaning:







and devoted to prayer...


Through contemplative practices, or spiritual disciplines, you will learn how to create space in your life for God which leads to true and lasting transformation.

Kavanna House provides a peaceful and tranquil space where you can spend quiet time with God. We offer instruction and guidance in spiritual practices through experiential classes and retreats focused on topics such as prayer, silence and solitude and journaling.  Specialty programs exploring spiritual formation through the arts are also available.  Personal and group retreat days are another option, creating the space and time for deeper reflection.

In addition, Kavanna House offers spiritual direction for individuals and organizations, training for those interested in becoming spiritual directors, consulting for churches and teaching spiritual formation in international settings.
