Our Spiritual Side

For those of us who share the heritage of Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other western religions, there is a seamless connection and rich tradition between meditation, Spirituality and Religion. Meditation can be a powerful connection with our God, however we name him.

For others, the power of meditation can help us connect with a universal source of energy that is powerful and transforming, but not necessarily linked to a particular religion or spiritual worldview.

As we so often say, “There are many paths to the same truth” – and we welcome this diversity!

The meditations and the programs you will find at the Hermitage appeal to both perspectives and we honor
whatever path you choose to deepen your sense of self, purpose and relationship to others and the world.

I learned how important right attitudes are. The course made me want to change, and it gave me the tools to structure new goals for myself.

“The field of personal improvement and inspirational writing is riddled with pseudo-technological claptrap very similar to the field of psychiatry. Fr. Justin’s writing is remarkably devoid of such; indeed, his messages are powerful truths about how to grow in life. He has crystallized his teaching with vigor, warmth, and love. This is some book!”
