Welcome to Zip Code Contemplation (ZCC)!

This program invites retreatants to stay connected with Mepkin Abbey and engage with others to continue deepening the contemplative dimension of their lives. Our goal is to provide both community and content to foster, and focus, your contemplative practice.

The initial concept envisioned groups of 6-10 retreatants organized by zip code and meeting at a specific location. Due to an overwhelming interest in the program from about 400 people, a new concept emerged to include also hosting meetings that are live, in-person, and leverage technology, similar to FaceTime or Skype, so you can join from home or any place with internet access.

We will conduct a pilot with a small number of groups early in 2019 in preparation for a successful launch of all groups in April/May.

For our inaugural series, we will feature Individuation: Beyond “Happy and Normal” by Brother Don Bisson, FMS who is, first and foremost, a spiritual director and is widely respected as a specialist in the training, formation and supervision of spiritual directors. He has a passion for tending the human soul in every dimension of life. With more than 70 live audio recordings available, Brother Bisson is internationally recognized for his lectures, workshops, and retreats on the interrelationship of Christian spirituality and Jungian psychology.
