Our Story

About Mary & Martha’s Place

Mary & Martha’s Place was established in 1994 by a group of women who were deeply committed to theological education, spiritual growth, social justice and ecological consciousness.  They believed that women needed a community where they can reflect on their lives, find their voices and articulate their unique spiritual experiences.  That belief still holds true today. We welcome you to join the circle.

What We Do

At Mary & Martha’s Place we explore concepts of spiritual transformation and provide a place where people can learn to put these ideas into practice. In these times of change in the culture, the church, and our personal lives, MMP is a center for resilience and vision that helps people stay grounded. We provide intentionally designed, complex, in-depth programs using a diverse network of teachers and thinkers.
