Welcome to the Christine Center web home. I’m glad you stopped by. On this website, you can learn about the bountiful opportunities we offer to groups and individuals. You can also learn about our history, our leadership, and ways you can support the center’s vital mission. If there is information you’re seeking, but cannot find, drop us a note or give us a call.
The most important thing you need to know about the Christine Center is this: You are welcome here. Regardless of what you believe, or even whether you believe, you are welcome. All are welcome. We don’t direct your path; we don’t judge your journey. We are here to serve you, empower you, and celebrate you.
I can tell you that this is a 125-acre woodland sanctuary dedicated to making the world a more compassionate place through spiritual deepening, but what you’ll discover is that this is a magical place.
The Christine Center is known for its warm, welcoming spirit; laughter and hugs; high-quality programming; healthful and delicious meals; contemplative practices; and a communion with the Earth.
This is a place you can feel the gentle breeze caress your face as you meditate in the verdant stillness. It can be a balm for the broken, a haven for the weary, a beacon for the searching, and a peaceful, loving, joyful place where the fruits of the spirit can grow rich and bountiful. This can also be a place for group events, educational programs, board retreats and strategic planning. In short, the Christine Center is holy ground where all are welcome and each of us can seek that which we most need. There’s more to tell, but that’s the heart of it.—-Russell King, executive director
