Since its beginning in 1984, the Pacific Center for Spiritual Formation (PCSF) has sought to offer opportunities for individuals, groups, and congregations to experience a deeper awareness of God. Rooted in the Christian contemplative tradition, ecumenical in composition, and committed to interfaith practice, PCSF is a resource for contemplative enrichment in the San Francisco Bay Area.

PCSF sponsors a number of events throughout the year. Events range from presentations by special speakers to annual retreats for spiritual deepening and ongoing contemplative practice groups throughout the Bay Area. In addition, we offer programs that foster spiritual growth, renewal, and healing.

PCSF staff include church and lay leaders, professionally trained spiritual directors, and retreat leaders. Some PCSF staff are available upon request to provide retreats and programs for congregations.

PCSF is an interfaith religious organization, and all who wish to participate are welcome. We seek to make our offerings as affordable as possible and also offer scholarship funds to those who need them. We welcome charitable donations to support our work. Visit the contact us page to contribute.
