Coming Home to Yourself: Demystifying the Retreat

September 1st, 2017 : 11am to September 4th, 2017 : 2pm

When you walk through our doors, someone will always greet you with, “Welcome Home to ARC” but what does it mean to come home to yourself?  This retreat is an opportunity for new or experienced retreat guests to explore their relationship with self and Spirit. Join us Labor Day weekend as we invite you to let go of the calendar, slow down enough to listen to the end of Summer, and reflect.

Along with facilitated dialogue and 2 hours a day of intentional silence you are invited to:

  • 3 daily optional yoga classes (slow flow, hatha, and yin)
  • 3 daily meditations (2 silent, 1 guided)
  • 1 daily lead hike
  • 10 homemade, vegetarian/vegan, organic or locally sourced meals (2 on arrival and departure days, 3 on full days), GF, DF and other special needs provided for upon request
  • Canoeing (as available)
  • Additional options to book: individual massage therapy or reiki


  • Shared lodge room = $360 
  • Private lodge room = $400 
  • Hermitage Stay= $420 
  • Cottage stay (total for up to 4 adults) = $1000

Private Retreats

Need time for renewal?

Private retreats are for individuals, families, or friends who wish to structure their own time at ARC and can be for any length of stay, as space is available.

You can enjoy resting, reading, walking, canoeing, or simply sitting by the fireplace and looking out the huge living room window.

Choose from three buildings on the ARC grounds, for more information visit the building specific pages (listed below).

Group Retreats

Group retreats hosted at ARC are facilitated and planned with leadership from the group.

Many groups come to ARC year after year to lead their own retreats. Groups bring their own participants and agenda, while we provide the hospitality, nurturing space and homemade vegetarian meals.

If your group is looking for a quiet, natural environment in which to plan, pray, reflect, rejuvenate, relax, explore, grow, or be inspired, ARC may be the right place for you.

Groups typically stay in the lodge, with overflow (as needed) to the cottage and the hermitage. Smaller groups may chose to stay in and/or meet in the cottage.
