Kavanna House
Kavanna House is a non-profit spiritual formation center designed to offer individuals
the means to move into deeper intimacy with God. Kavanna is a Hebrew word meaning:
intentional ~ awakened ~ mindful ~ and devoted to prayer
Through contemplative courses, retreats and spiritual direction, you will learn
how to create space in your life for God which leads to true and lasting transformation.
The Intimacy Project
The Intimacy Project is a nine month journey into your life with God, creating space and time for what you say is most important to you.
Over five weekends, you will experience a rhythm of learning contemplative practices,
spending time alone in reflection and the opportunity to process your experience in a safe group setting.

Formational Prayer Seminar
Kavanna House believes that one of the best gifts
you can give yourself and others is to begin and to continue your own healing journey.
Experiencing our own personal healing moves us deeper into wholeness which impacts not only our own lives but those around us.
Critical Journey Cohorts
Do you have questions about where your spiritual life is taking you? Have you found yourself having doubts, asking questions, feeling as if you don’t ‘fit in’ any longer, and perhaps even feeling that your faith is slipping through your fingertips? How would it feel to know that what you may be experiencing is completely normal and may even be a sign of deeper growth in your life with God? Kavanna House offers a nine-month course centered around The Critical Journey, the book by Janet Hagberg and Robert Guelich.
