About Shadybrook

For more than 60 years, Shadybrook has been opening minds and inspiring hearts. We offer a safe forum for diverse ideas and dialogue.

Through thought-provoking programs, we create opportunities for spiritual exploration and lifelong learning. Our inclusive, caring community fosters appreciation for the richness found in diversity.

A not-for-profit organization, Shadybrook's commitment is to create dynamic growth experiences for people,  specifically, assisting people in creating more vital, loving and joyous relationships with self, others, (depending on your journey, with) God/Spirit/Source and the Universe.

Once located on a gracious estate, Shadybrook House on the Holden Arboretum grounds, Shadybrook now offers programs virtually and at various locations in Northeast Ohio.

Our work isn’t based upon an ideology or religious affiliation, but we do have guiding principles:


We accept each person for who they are and the unique talent and strength they bring.


We respect the spiritual and cultural roots of individuals and communities.


From personal to international relations, we believe consistent nonviolence will establish and maintain the trust necessary for a peaceful world.


We realize that we are all connected as one human family and must translate our compassion and concern into useful service.


We seek to form long-term partnerships with our members, local organizations & community leaders, we build trust, mutual respect & cultural understanding.


As a non-profit, tax-exempt, charitable organization, we provide affordable programs & scholarships to individuals hopeful for solutions that inspire personal & social change.
