Contemplative Spaces

Our 16-acre campus offers a variety of indoor and open-air spaces that invite private contemplation as well as group gatherings and worship.

 

The Centrum

Serving as the living room of the Guild, the Centrum provides a comfortable, welcoming space for groups of up to 50 to gather in corporate worship. In addition to flexible seating arrangements, this space features a projector and screen for media use, as well as a cozy woodstove to warm up gatherings on a cool winter evening.

 

 

 

The Labyrinth

From ancient times, the labyrinth has served as a reminder of pilgrimage and spiritual journey. Ours takes the form of a Celtic triple spiral, and is located in a quiet clearing amid the pine forest, overlooking the rushing Wenatchee River. It is a well-loved site for both individual and group contemplation, and is particularly beautiful at dusk when illuminated by candlelight.

 

 

The Library

With its glowing pine floors and vibrant stained glass, the library beckons individuals as well as groups to study, meditation, and prayer. A favorite space for contemplative activities ranging from iconography to poetry-writing to yoga, the library also provides written inspiration in its stellar collection of art and faith resources.

 

 

The Garden

In addition to providing beauty and sustenance for our community, the Guild's organic garden is a source of spiritual inspiration. During our summer program, the whole community gathers for morning prayer in the garden, and at other times it is available for guests to wander undisturbed among the verdant leaves.
