About the Guild

Our History

The Northeast Guild for Spiritual Formation is an ecumenical community that seeks to encourage and support all who desire growth and deepening in their spiritual lives. The origins of the Northeast Guild hearken back to 2002, when seven of us – clergy, spiritual directors, educators and a psychologist – met at a local café hoping to find possibilities for collegiality in our work. We did find the collegiality we sought, but more profoundly, we also discovered mutual support for our spiritual journeys. Gradually, as our communion deepened, we felt called to offer that network of support to a wider community.
