ARC is

silence in a deafening world
serenity in an overcharged society

MISSION

Rooted in Christian tradition, ARC is an inter-spiritual nonprofit retreat center staffed by a resident community serving groups and individuals seeking time apart, rest, and spiritual renewal.

ARC provides hospitality that nurtures body, mind and soul, embracing people in their full diversity, including all faith traditions, spiritual beliefs, ages, races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, and income levels.

VISION

ARC envisions a transformed world in which all people embrace and cultivate the spiritual nature of life through healthy, loving relationships with themselves, each other, the divine, and the earth.

Fulfilling the MISSION

ARC seeks to fulfill its mission by balancing Action, Reflection, and Celebration, and connecting times of retreat to daily life so that the journey inward—nurturing spirit—inspires the journey outward—nourishing the world in the quest for harmony, peace, and justice.
