The Art of Lving Retreat Center is opening into a new phase of use. After years of neglect, buildings have become homes and places for people from different places and backgrounds to meet each other, smile and create community. Your support has made this all possible.
With your continued support, we hope to do much more to establish this center as fully operational for years and years, and generations to come. You are invited to join in this project in service, donation or in kind.
With all the support received by the center, we had several accomplishments:
opened 5 residential halls, some critically damaged, housing over 500 people for courses.
Repaired a retaining wall to ensure long-term structural stability
Made 6 halls, which had been left abandoned, into ideal settings for meditation
Fixed the 2 kitchens to make them up and running
Repaired the road to raise the safety standards at the center and meet county code
Some work is still left to ensure these gains last for the long term. Your gift will play a key role in making this extraordinary facility a world-class destination for peace and transformation.
