What is the Two-Year Academy?
Our flagship spiritual formation program, the Two-Year Academy invites participants to meet in residence (in the same location) for five days every three months for a total of 40 days in residence over the course of two years.
An experience of disciplined Christian community emphasizing holistic spirituality—nurturing body, mind, and spirit—the Two-Year Academy for Spiritual Formation is ecumenical in nature and held together by spiritual rhythms of study and prayer, silence and liturgy, solitude and relationship, rest and play. Two-Year participants rediscover Christianity’s rich spiritual heritage through worship, learning, and fellowship. In covenant community and in personal reflection, participants find time and space to discern direction, make covenants, and practice commitments.
