Explore the Gift of Quiet: Transfiguration Spirituality Center

Explore the gift of quiet at the Transfiguration Spirituality Center

The Transfiguration Spirituality Center (TSC) is located in Glendale, Ohio, an easy drive from communities in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.   Identified by its guests as ‘a peaceful place’, the Center is a ministry of the Community of the Transfiguration (a religious community for women in the Anglican/Episcopal tradition).  TSC provides retreat and meeting space for groups and individuals seeking time apart from daily life for a few hours or a few days.  Our facilities are available for groups and individuals of all faiths and no faith.  We welcome all who seek peace.

For individuals or groups seeking a time to gather, reflect and grow, TSC provides:

  • Attractive, private overnight accommodations in lovely surroundings

  • Comfortable rooms for meeting and socializing

  • Lovely grounds, including a labyrinth

  • A quality dining experience

  • Worship opportunities in two beautiful chapels

  • Easy access from highways and free parking

  • Accessibility for people with mobility issues

Offering hospitality by welcoming groups and individuals is a significant part of our ministry. We also strive to bring in retreat leaders who can invite individuals into a deeper conversation as part of a spiritual path.  In 2016 we were delighted to co-sponsor with Christ Church Cathedral, the Rev. Becca Stevens, Director of Thistle Farms in Nashville, Tennessee.

In 2017 we will be sponsoring and collaborating with others for several retreats:

  • February 3-5  The Rev. Jane Vennard will lead a retreat on spiritual practices, “Spiritual Practices to Nuture your Soul”

  • February 6-10 & 10-12 Retreats based on the work of Brene Brown, led by the Rev. Mary Laymon, certified facilitator in Brown’s ‘Daring Way’ and ‘Rising Strong’ workshops

  • April 13-16 An opportunity to share three of the holiest days in the Christian calendar in community

  • May 19-21 Retreat led by Kathleen Dowling Singh “The Grace in Living”

  • September 29-October 1 The Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts-Schori will lead a retreat reflecting on “Creation and Climate: Just Living or Living Justly?”

  • Quarterly mid-week self-directed quiet days for individuals to come for a time away from their daily routine.
