Summer Spirituality Courses

Experience the Expansion of Your Heart

In many ways simply by coming to Ghost Ranch, finding oneself immersed in the splendor of this landscape, connecting to the majesty of God’s creation, one could say it’s a spiritual journey for all who visit. The connection to spirit is so readily available that Ghost Ranch is revered by some as a “thin place”—a place where the distance between heaven and earth dissolves, a place that can relax and transform us.

If you’ve ever been to Ghost Ranch, you get the meaning.

Ghost Ranch, an ecumenical and interfaith education and retreat center of the Presbyterian Church (USA), is grounded in spirituality and all are welcome. We’ve designed workshops that allow you to grow and deepen your faith, to feed yourself so you, in turn, can feed others in our world. Wise teachers from around the country come here to guide you through the journey of nurturing your soul and spirit.

We invite you to review our spiritual offerings. We hope you find something that speaks to you so you may join us and experience the expansion of your heart while you gaze across a wide-open sky.
