The Tigg’s Pond Retreat Center is a resource for all aspects of your spiritual life. We help open windows of understanding, peel back layers of resistance, provide tools that will aid in your transformation process and work with you to write an owner’s manual for your spiritual life (and mix metaphors with abandon). You come here to be quiet and listen to your heart, with a desire to grow and transform. We show you some helpful techniques. We listen to your story. And we give you support and encouragement for your journey. It’s a simple relationship. It’s based on your spiritual needs and our commitment to serve and desire to help.
The Tiggs Pond Retreat Center focuses on connecting people of all spiritual paths to their deepest values and motivations. We help you become aware of God’s activity in your life and show you some ways to communicate more directly with God. We provide an ambience of trust and warmth to encourage you to open your heart. This helps you think more deeply. And we provide a beautiful, tranquil environment for you to wander in. This helps you relax enough to hear and see what you are meant to know.
Our programs cover a wide range of topics that center on our spiritual connection to the world around us. There are many ways to experience the truth but only a few that each of us is open to seeing and hearing. So we provide many avenues. Our educational offerings assist you in learning how to open up to and access your spiritual self. Saints and mystics have covered this ground before us so we teach what is most useful from their journeys, which encompasses knowledge from the East as well as the West.
Content and practice don’t produce meaningful growth in isolation, however. Because our programs and teachings are attended by a wide variety of individuals interested in the interior life, you will be meeting a new group of people with similar goals and desires to yours. Together, you form a community of seekers who can support and encourage each other just as we do for you. We all have something to learn and something to teach. By being a part of what happens at Tigg’s Pond, you have the opportunity to both give and receive, which enriches the experience for everyone concerned.
You have discovered a place that is here to help, sustain and inform your interior life in an environment of beauty and privacy. It’s a place you can return to again and again for renewal and refreshment. Nothing would please us more than your taking full advantage of what we offer as often as you can, because we honestly feel you will benefit from it. Whoever you are, whatever place you are in, we welcome you here and hope you will visit soon and often. Blessings.
