The Art Studio will be open every Saturday and Sunday

We are celebrating 10 years of art and creativity workshops with a new studio! Daily live drumming, singing bowls, and painting experiences will be available at various times during the October weekend Open Studio! Come experience our beautiful bookstore and meditation spaces, and sample delicious,
intriguing tea and treats from the soul-restoring recipes of St. Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th century visionary artist and creative.

With a faculty of talented and experienced artists, we offer “Creation Station” art classes and beauty making experiences, as well as art as meditation and soul-art for contemplative deepening. Weekly open “creativity clinics” provide anyone of any skill level an opportunity to bring their art for conversation and tips, but most especially for inspiration to work out creative challenges.
A Sacred Pause with Aveen Banich has been moved online!

Participate online from home or come to the Christine Center and join from your room or hermitage. We will host an outdoor sharing circle around the fire Saturday evening for all who attend on site.

We Are One - The Art of Contemplation

The unique and beautiful Christine Center main building is a delightful piece of architecture, and it also houses a rich and changing collection of inspiring artwork.  Your soulful and contemplative experience is supported and enriched as you move about the building, receiving blessings from a rich variety of spiritual traditions, but especially strong is the presence of the beloved St. Francis.
