Cathedral Ridge is open for individuals and couples to rest and reflect in self-guided or directed retreats. In the setting aside of time and space, we make room to listen deeply to the voice of the holy in our lives. Whether hiking, walking the labyrinth, or enjoying the views, the campus offers a variety of beautiful settings. If personal retreats are a new experience for you, The Rev. Kim Seidman is glad to provide materials for reflection or hold space for prayerful conversations. Guests may stay in a Lupine Lodge room or a fully-equipped cottage.
Cathedral Ridge is excited to partner with gifted individuals who offer their ministry-in-residence for a time. October 26-28, we welcome The Rev. Elizabeth Thompson, an ACPE psychotherapist. Guests who book a retreat during this time have an opportunity for individual conversations with Elizabeth.
Elizabeth is the founder of Eremos Consulting Group, a company devoted to consulting with and coaching clergy and congregations. She works extensively with clergy in a variety of traditions. Eremos is Greek for “wilderness desert”. She chose this image because the wilderness desert is a complex place of desolation as well as a place of renewal and transformative encounters with the sacred. She is also a Pastoral Counselor, a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, a congregational consultant and coach, a spiritual director, a non-profit consultant, and a facilitator for board retreats, leadership development, workshops, and other kinds of events.
For clergy and lay leaders participating in the Church Pension Group Employee Assistance Program, Elizabeth is in-network and open to receiving new clients if you wish to schedule recurring conversations.
