Welcome to The Alcyon Center!
April 2020 ~ for our impressions of these times, read:
Being Still Alycon, Beauty in the Desert, Sanctifying Times
Located on Mount Desert Island on the edge of Seal Cove, Maine, we are an experiment in practicing community, spiritual hospitality and theological study for our times. At root, we follow a countercultural notion that Silence encountered in the depth of the human heart is healing medicine for the world. Alcyon programs explore contemplative paths for our times and are invitations to think about the world in new ways.
- a Guest Teacher series of inspiring retreats
- Alcyon Cornerstone Courses to rebuild hearts and culture
- Contemplative Spiritual Direction Training and
- Alcyon Ongoing Life with many ways to deepen, practice and volunteer here
With blessings from ever-changing Seal Cove,
Kathryn Booth and Joan Jordan Grant, directors
