Welcome to the Contemplative Studio

The Contemplative Studio is the spiritual direction and retreat facilitation practice of Laura Mullet Koop, M.A., Spiritual Director.

lauramulletkoop-20Spiritual direction is a practice of increasing our capacity to pay attention to the movements in our lives while listening deeply for the whispers of God’s Spirit in a safe, confidential environment. Spiritual direction is offered at my ‘studio’, a pleasant, relaxed, and quiet space on our family farm. Retreat facilitation for individuals or groups can be accommodated upon request.

Spiritual Direction session  New fees for 2023 – $85/session. Students are invited to contact me directly to arrange a student fee. 

Day Retreat facilitation – quotes available upon request.

* Some logistical notes about the Studio: the studio space is accessed via stairs and the washroom facilities are in a separate building a short walk away. Spiritual direction can be offered in an alternative accessible space.

“The art of living is about weaving the different strands of life together into a meaningful whole that holds us safe. Strands are constantly added and taken away so that we need to tend carefully to the fabric of our lives on a daily basis, disconnecting, reconnecting and integrating all the time.” ~ Emmy van Deurzen
