Recurring Gatherings 

For many years on the date of Each Newl Moon “Twinkle” hosts a gathering in her home for friends who wish to celebrate with her…

This website is a resource for all of us who are drawn to the Mystical aspects of Life and Living. Tara Brach's weekly video class and meditation offers additional contemplative time.
  • Theology and Spirituality Classes, Webinars, Sermons and Curriculum

Typically once per month, “Twinkle” hosted a class to broaden the understanding Living Life as a Prayer and in collaboration with neighboring faiths.  Often times it is through uses of online media as she and those present review a sermon, audio, video, publication or curriculum by other ministers and lay leaders who are well versed in the topics of discussion.  These take place on the 15th day of each month, unless otherwise noted in the calendar.

Twinkle’s Lancey Street House 2015-2021

In 2021 we bid farewell to our Lancey Street retreat center. The location served us well for almost seven years.

It was time to move full-time to our Lake-side retreat locations. One in Rockwood and one in the heart of Kineo.
