Welcome to the Belly of the Whale! 

Just as Jonah encountered God in the belly of the whale, we also long to encounter God amidst our often stormy and busy lives. 

Our mission is to help you find your belly of the whale, a safe space to connect with God through spiritual direction, retreat leadership and creative ways to pray.

Take a look at what we offer and let us know how we might share this journey of spiritual discovery together with you.

Slow down, simplify, and add a burst of color to your Advent this year. The spiritual practice of coloring mandalas, lighting candles, and praying regularly can help us stay centered on God during this busy time of year. Based on the four candles of the Advent wreath, Mandalas, Candles, and Prayer weaves together the popular practice of coloring with four simple methods of contemplative prayer. For Advent this year color, pray and let the candles light your way.  

Mandalas, Candles and Prayer:

A Simply Centered Advent.
