At the Glen, morning classes are taught by renowned artists and critics. Afternoons and evenings feature a smorgasbord of poetry readings, gallery tours, film screenings, concerts, open mics, and more. And amidst it all, there is a wide variety of opportunities to explore the intersection of art and faith via daily chapel, yoga, centering prayer, and contemplative hikes in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. 

Those taking their classes online will have access to much of Asheville’s afternoon and evening programming via livestream or recordings. Plus, there will be small cohorts and interactive experiences just for digital commuters designed to foster meaningful camaraderie even across the miles.

Our schedule is still in development, but a preliminary outline is available below.


Notes: All schedule details are subject to changeInstead of the traditional full day off on Thursday, we’ve split the break into two half days and the Glen will end at 11am on Saturday. See our FAQ for more about our schedule if the 2021 Glen goes entirely online due to public health concerns
