Today the Haleys live with their four children in the Shenandoah Valley on a rural seventeen-acre retreat farm named Corhaven, literally meaning safe harbor for the heart. Here they are finding new ways of becoming contemplatives living in the heart of the world.


Corhaven is also headquarters for Coracle, a small non-profit they founded in 2010 to inspire and enable people to be the presence of God in the world by offering spiritual formation for Kingdom action.  Learn more at inthecoracle.org

Coracle: Vessel of Skin and Skeleton Frame is the story of a young Virginia couple who receive an unexpected invitation to get in and go with God. It is a story of pilgrimage the deep soul search for meaning and mooring, that compels them to explore the historic reaches of Celtic Christian faith. Guiding this couple and the Celtic pilgrims, is the same blessed unrest that led Mother Teresa to the face of Jesus, distressingly disguised as the most vulnerable of the world’s poor in Kolkata, India.

Teresa’s journey is in fact what brings Bill Haley and Tara Scherer into brief, albeit separate, encounters with her during the mid-1990s when she helps them independently choose belonging to Jesus as a primary vocation.This is the belonging that leads Bill, an Anglican priest, and Tara, a nurse practitioner of poverty medicine, to meet, marry and move into a struggling neighborhood where they planted a church together called St. Brendan’s in the City.

Corhaven is headquarters for Coracle, a small non-profit they founded in 2010 to inspire and enable people to be the presence of God in the world by offering spiritual formation for Kingdom action. Coracle helps people do the stuff that makes the world more like what God designed it to be—recognizing that as simple vessels of skin and frame, our strength, our skill and our smarts alone, will never get us there. But by the power of the Holy Spirit, God’s glory can be revealed in and through us.

Coracle invites the 21st century pilgrim into the transformed life through spiritual direction, retreats, sacramental ministry, communication, ministries of mercy and justice, mission trips, creation care and pilgrimage.
