New Eden Ministry is a growing community which is primarily online. We have a bunch of different ways that we come together depending on our individual interests and level of commitment. This website has the Sunday reflections, spiritual practices, and the written content of our ministry. The majority of the actual community activity happens via Facebook. There is great diversity among us, including both lay folk and clergy from many different denominations – but we all share a passion for mystical living in the Christian tradition and we all minister to one another. You can check out some of the different areas of our vibrant community below, click each title to learn more. You are welcome to join us as we walk this road together!
The Virtual chapel is a group for spiritual seekers, mystics, contemplatives, and anyone who earnestly wishes to deepen their inner life and relationship with God. We have daily discussions about topics ranging from eschatology to contemplative prayer to ethics. Many people taking our Vitual Retreat choose to use this group to discuss what they are learning with the community. If you’re looking for contemplative community, this is the place for you!
New Eden meets every Monday for shared contemplative prayer and discussion around the mystics. We use Zoom, which is a very simple way to meet face to face over great distances.
Take a virtual retreat with our online community and explore Celtic Christianity more deeply. In this retreat we take a deeper look at the sacred around us and within us and how we can create spaces for both. This introductory retreat will give you the tools to ground your spiritual life in the wisdom of trees and rivers, to explore the universe which is within you, and to live with compassion and integrity in a world which is far too often dark and unhealthy.
Community has many different definitions but one of them is certainly shared practice and way of life. Our modes of prayer, our common understanding, and our shared stories and songs make us a community. Come, and pray with us.
