take a moment...

It’s a gift to joyfully recognize and accept our own smallness and ordinariness. Then you are free with nothing to live up to, nothing to prove, and nothing to protect.

Welcome To Mercy By The Sea

Mercy by the Sea believes in the sacred nature of the individual and all of creation.  Our programs, retreats and events encourage individuals to listen into and trust the still inner voice. From that place deep longings, creative imagination and fledgling efforts in service of a greater good can emerge, be nurtured and spread in the world. 

Mercy by the Sea also has meeting rooms and overnight accommodations for groups that wish to gather for team building, inner work or professional development.
