The Prolegomena

We Are Selah explores contemplative living, generous listening, community, and love in action through beautiful images and words. These are the reflections of Selah’s hopes. Given as gift and grace by God, these beacons guide us in a contemplative life with the invitation to pause, encounter, and grow together.

Selah is a welcoming community rooted and grounded in love, shaped within the Christian tradition while accompanying those who wander through other faith expressions. Selah encourages those who seek spiritual companionship on the journey of life.
