At New Eden Ministry we understand that finances do not allow everyone to participate. For that reason we are offering scholarships to interested parties. The scholarship includes an 80% discount and in return we ask for a little bit of your time. Those who receive a scholarship agree to do the following:

  1. Join the Virtual Chapel
  2. Answer each discussion question thoughtfully in the Chapel
  3. Respond to other people’s answers to the discussion questions
  4. Share our content on social media and with your friends

You can apply for a scholarship by filling out the form below. When you do, you will receive an email with a code that will give you an 80% discount when you sign up. You will also receive weekly emails detailing how to share our content on social media. We ask that you share each one. You will receive 7 emails in total and then you won’t hear from us again unless you ask to.

Ask questions like:

  1. How will this benefit you
  2. Could you afford this retreat without the scholarship?
  3. How did you hear about the retreat

first email will be the landing page, then one email with content relating to each section for a total of 7. One Mary harp video? high sharability. Make ad video on youtube and include that


Scholarships are available for those willing to contribute some time and effort to the vitality of our of our online community. If you have any further questions, or if you would like to apply for a scholarship, please email

All of the videos are accompanied by Mary Anderson’s magical harp music. Mary is a professional Celtic Harpist and spiritual practitioner who has blessed our retreat with her gift of sacred music. Justin Coutts provides the teaching and spiritual guidance while Mary is playing.

The profits from this retreat will be used towards setting up a physical location for live retreats. Our hope is to bring an appreciation of nature, contemplation, and social justice to as many people as possible.

Our vision is to help heal the church. Christianity has been a tool of empire and a dusty old institution without mystical depth for far too long. There is a growing contemplative movement emerging within the church, our ministry is to help nurture it.

We believe the best way to help this seed grow is by bringing people out into the wilderness to pray. In the case of this virtual retreat we are trying to bring the wilderness to people who may not have the luxury of free wild spaces around them. In the future we hope to do both.
