About the event

Could you use some self care? How would you like to spend four days on a  beautiful and secluded retreat, with nothing to do but meditation and  exploration? How wonderful would it be to spend a weekend in nature,  unplugged from tv and electronics, focusing on loving your truest self?

Take this opportunity to escape your normal routine, maybe even a rut,  for the four-day Spiritual Renewal Retreat in Michigan’s Upper  Peninsula, at the Garden Grove Retreat Center.

 You will leave the retreat: 

  • With the skills to Meditate on your own 
  • Having learned how to Forgive and Let Go on a whole new level 
  • With a newfound Sense of Peace you never knew was within you 
  • Feeling Renewed 
  • Having the ability and knowledge you need to make Lasting Changes 


About Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and Garden Grove Retreat Center 

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is a picturesque destination, full of lush national forests. Our retreat will be in Garden, a small village about 200 miles Northwest of Grand Rapids. With less than 1,000  residents in the area, tourism is primarily focused on the state park and retreat center.

Fayette Historic State Park is a Ghost Town built in 1870, which is a short drive from the accommodations. Additionally, Michigan’s largest natural freshwater spring, Kitch-iti-kipi (AKA The Big Spring) is about 25 minutes away from the retreat center.

There will be plenty of free time throughout the weekend here to visit both of these attractions. Garden Grove Retreat Center and Lodging was a Catholic retreat center for many years. It was donated to the city and is now open to all.
