Retreat Leaders


The leaders of Shalom Mountain retreats bring to their work a high degree of expertise from the fields of psychology, theology, education, medicine and business. They are process leaders, skilled in following and facilitating process rather than providing answers for others. They believe in the power of individual and global transformation.
