Refresh Yourself

Join us for a personal retreat, sojourn, or extended stay. Those seeking overnight accommodations or place to take a sabbatical are most welcome!

Looking to enhance your personal retreat?

Join in components of The Spring Term by worshiping and working alongside students and scholars. Participate in guided opportunities for daily self reflection, and spend time in the garden or library with this year’s cohort.

Request additional information in the comments section when you book your stay between March 1 and May 10.


Enjoy time in the Art Studio every day between 8 AM and 8 PM with purchase of a $10 day pass ($15/day for guests who are not staying overnight). Take time to work on your own project, or paint, collage, sew, crochet, and create with the supplies available in this space.

Learn more about using the Art Studio during your stay.


Make your own working retreat. For those interested in the rhythm and gratification of a working retreat, there are multiple volunteer opportunities on campus. Take up chores in the garden, kitchen, library, or on the grounds during your stay to give your retreat structure and purpose.

Apply for volunteer opportunities during your personal retreat.
