Christos Center is a welcoming community of individuals who practice and teach contemplative spirituality. Christian and ecumenical, we serve people of all denominations, as well as those with no affiliation. Christos is a place to forge deep connections with God and others. God’s grace toward us and in us is the foundation and cornerstone of all we do. With locations in the Twin Cities, Chicago and worldwide through distance learning, Christos is a place for people to enter the quiet and ponder the deeper questions of life through prayer and reflection.
Our particular focus is on experiencing God’s presence through the Christian traditions of silence, solitude, prayer, retreat, pilgrimage, and spiritual direction. These practices help us to recognize and be open to what God is doing. By cultivating our inner lives in this way, we are changed for the better. We can then actively share God’s love in the world and nurture the souls of others.
Here at Christos, we host a variety of workshops, prayer experiences, and group learning opportunities including Ignatian Retreat to bring learners into a deep, connected relationship with God. We also offer a two-year training program in spiritual direction called Tending the Holy. Through this program, we prepare individuals to prayerfully listen and help others notice and respond to God’s call.
