Still Lake Listening

Professional Listeners/Spiritual Directors

We are trained listeners here to ask the questions that will help you sink deeply into your story. We offer a complimentary service where we’re here to listen with you for what your life is already telling you. We are not counselors or psychologists, so you won’t find diagnosis or counsel here.

Your life story is talking to you. What would it be like to have someone listen, uninterrupted, to what you have to say? 

You’ve found a safe and nonjudgmental listening space here. We’ll come alongside as you unpack the stuff of mind, heart, and soul. The grieving, the celebratory; the holy and the scary. 

If you’re seeking healing, clarity, or peace of mind, we invite you to come and talk it out with us.


Facility Rental

We have community meeting space available for rent for all of your needs.

Do you have a workshop or seminar that you'd like to run?  Are you a home-based business that occasionally needs meeting space?  We can help!  Contact our Facility Manager, Michelle, and she can assist you with your needs.


Main Floor Group Room

This is our more intimate group meeting space.  It can accommodate up to 10 people.  There is a white board, internet access, and CAT6 ports for any of your AV needs.

Basement Meeting Room

This larger meeting space is highly adaptable to the needs of your meeting or group.  It has been used for workshops, meetings, seminars, and even yoga.  There are portable work tables, chairs, white board, internet access, and CAT6 ports for any of your AV needs.
