The Mission of the Joshua Tree Retreat Center, also known as The Institute of MentalPhysics,
is to demonstrate an inclusive and equitable model by:

  • Offering an intentional habitat centered around deep inquiry into spiritual practice.
  • Enhancing the spiritual science of MentalPhysics.
  • Providing unique educational opportunities in organic architecture and regional culture.

"Joshua Tree Retreat Center is the physical manifestation of the desert’s spirituality."

- J. Cheryl Bookout, JTRC Board Member
