Welcome to the Contemplative Studio

The Contemplative Studio is the spiritual direction and retreat facilitation practice of Laura Mullet Koop.

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 our ‘Studio’, a pleasant, relaxed and quiet space on our family farm. After 3 years of offering seasonal retreats with my colleague Beth Woelk, we are in the process of evaluating and redesigning our offerings. Please stay tuned! Enneagram workshops with Carrie Jones will resume in Fall 2020.

Below are the spiritual direction services I offer, applicable fees and logistical information about our Studio located at 3520 19th Street, Jordan, Ontario, Canada. While physical distancing measures are in place because of COVID-19 all sessions are being offered online through Zoom.

Spiritual Direction session  New fees for 2020 – $75/session. Students are invited to contact me directly to arrange a student fee. 

* 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
