The Center offers interfaith meditation instruction, individual spiritual direction, meditation therapy and seminars promoting intercultural understanding. It also provides guest speakers and retreat leaders to organizations requesting these services. St. John's Center is open to all people of good will, regardless of religious background or current religious allegiance. 

Let’s Rally Around Ellie!
As some of you may know, Sr. Ellie Finlay had to have a full knee replacement at the end of September.  Her psoriatic arthritis made it necessary to also have an unexpected bone graft at the time of surgery.  This change in the trajectory of her recovery has led to yet a second month in which she must be housebound and will lose income from seeing private clients.  We are asking for your generosity so that she may keep current on her bills and take care of other expenses that have come about because of her medical situation.

Sr. Ellie has spent more than 20 years assisting thousands of Oklahomans with our spiritual, meditative and personal issues, so let’s take this opportunity to help her during this particularly challenging time.
