Two key Oasis training programs will be held in the Pocono Mountains of PA
Exciting news from Oasis! Beginning this fall, the home for our Spiritual Direction and Deepening Year training programs becomes Kirkridge Retreat Center (kirkridge.org), outside of Stroudsburg, PA, just off of Interstate 80.
We share much in common with Kirkridge going back to our earliest years with their founder, John Oliver Nelson, being a friend of Kent Groff’s and an early Oasis board member. Our Director of Training and Program, Glenn Mitchell writes: "I think this is a relationship that can be mutually beneficial to both of our missions. The site is beautiful, rustic, quiet, and their Celtic connection through the years is in the architecture, the stones, the silence and the air. I sense it will be a great place for our participants to learn and retreat...We’ve called Kenbrook home for 17 years but now, as that door closes, I celebrate the rightness of calling Kirkridge our new home."
Please help to spread the word! Our programs are now accepting registrations for the Fall... discounts before May 31!
