At Rolling Ridge we find Life in being wholly present to the Holy Presence in everyone and everything.  This vital practice finds rootedness and resource in well-cared-souls. Therefore, we invite intentional Listening Spaces that combine unconditional welcome, transformational relationships and engaging contemplative practices. Whether short term or long term, these Listening Spaces offer regular, supportive soulcare within a connecting community experience.

Divine Friendships.jpg

 The men in Illuman’s emerging New England region gather as an informal independent association to share the fellowship of men transforming men through a power greater than themselves.  Their experiences show them that the pain they do not transform they will transmit, so they seek a life changing spirituality.  They are fed by the wisdom traditions of forgiveness and radical inclusivity.  They are simply interested in becoming better, more authentic men.  Together, they gather in council, virtually and in person, to support each man’s individual and collective spiritual growth.  Their experiences are informed by that which is offered by Illuman and draws upon the teachings Father Richard Rohr and other contemplatives.  For more information about the men of Illuman in New England and what they do, please contact George Sawin or Tony Pelusi.

This series title draws its inspiration from a quote by the great 16th century Spanish mystic, Teresa of Avila, who described contemplative prayer as “a close sharing between friends”.  From the Christian perspective, divine friendships manifest themselves in at least three ways. The first is friendship within God expressed in the Holy Trinity. This is the original divine friendship out of which all the others flow. The second is friendship between God and the individual human person. The third is friendship between and among human persons united to each other through the Holy Spirit. 


For the 2022-23 year, we invite women who have been part of the original group two years ago and the women who have just completed the first year to join together for a brand new "Gathering of Women: Continuing the Women's Journey."

weekday book study.jpg

Rolling Ridge is adding a new weekday book group this spring meeting monthly on Wednesday mornings from 10-11:30 am eastern.  

We will begin with a study of Tish Harrison Warren’s book, Liturgy of the Ordinary: sacred practices in everyday life. Harrison Warren offers an invitation to, as Karen Swallow Prior says, ‘brush the dust off your dingy days and discover and revel the extraordinary that is to be found in the ordinary”. She takes a number of our tasks that, if not rote, we certainly very seldom perform with presence and awareness of the divine.   Click here to register
