Joshua Tree Retreat Center – Reopens to the Community
After being closed for over a year due to the pandemic, the Joshua Tree Retreat Center has re-opened its campus with new programs and activities steeped in spiritual wellness. The historic property, which is home to the largest collection of Lloyd Wright buildings in the country, has also opened its cafeteria to the public for the first time in the Center’s history. Whether you are local or visiting the area, set aside an afternoon or stay for a personal retreat to reflect, renew and recharge before the holiday season.
Qi Gong, crystal meditation, yoga and breathwork classes are offered weekly in Noble Hall and in the outdoor Tai Chi circle. Community Soundbaths and the Soulful Sunday Healing Circle are also offered on a monthly basis. To find a wellness class for you, visit: https://jtrcc. org/calendar/
The Joshua Tree Retreat Center now offers personal retreat stays for individuals. Personal retreats are a rare opportunity to stay on this historical property, and design your own experience, at your own pace over the course of two days or more.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT CAFÉ
The newly opened Food for Thought vegetarian café offers breakfast and lunch Thursdays through Mondays from 7am to 2pm. The café terrace offers beautiful views of the campus and is a wonderful hidden spot to slow down and unwind.
The Joshua Tree Retreat Center’s Spirituality shop, open Thursdays through Mondays from 10am to 3pm, has a great selection of books, rocks and crystals as well as a new line of clothing by Sherri Sullivan. In the month of November, visit the Spirituality Shop to find everything you need to build your own altar, an intentional place in your home to practice meditation, gratitude, and reflection.
