The Contemplative Beehive is located in Boulder, Colorado. It is a resource center to nurture and support the development of contemplative spirituality. It is deeply and firmly grounded in the Christian tradition, the practice of centering prayer, and Benedictine living. It also seeks to connect with mystical practitioners of other faith traditions.

In pursuing our mission to be a resource for people who are on the Christian Contemplative path, we organize workshops, commuter and residential retreats. Through DVD series, we share the teachings of contemporary leaders in the wisdom tradition, such as Richard Rohr, James Finley, and Cynthia Bourgeault.  We have a collaborative relationship with Contemplative Outreach Ltd. and help promote the practice of Centering Prayer by facilitating Centering Prayer groups, presenting introductory workshops, and serving as coordinators for Contemplative Outreach of Boulder County.

Contemplative spirituality is a lifetime journey. To aid in this journey, we can work with you, one-on-one, to discern the possibility of engaging in the work of spiritual direction.
