2019 Academy Update

We have seen such a positive response for the 2019 Academy that we are out of single rooms! If you are interested in being placed on a wait list for single rooms please register for the Academy requesting a double room, then email our registrar, Kristin Warthen, to be placed on the waitlist. If a room becomes available, we will update your registration and notify you. A change from a double to a single will also mean a change in registration rate as rates are based on room preference.

Shareable Flyer for February 2019 Academy

Feel free to pass this flyer out to your church or friends and family who may find the Academy experience nourishing.

2018 Recordings from North Texas 5 Day

It is the intention of each Academy to record each of the lectures given by the faculty. Due to technical glitches, we are only able to provide about half of the 2018 lectures from Mary Earle and Roger Owen. We apologize for this, but we trust that the following will be as rich for you as it was for those of us who attended the February 2018 North Texas Academy.
Peace be with you.

Single Rooms Sold Out, Double Rooms Available

Just an update on registration: If you desire a single room, we are currently on a wait list at this point. There is limited space still available for double rooms. When you register for the 2018 Academy, know that you will be put in a double room unless you note if you want to also be added to the single room wait list. 
Thank you for your interest in this opportunity for spiritual formation and may the peace of God be with you.
