Located on a hillside of the Appalachian trail, every inch of Kirkridge Retreat Center's 107 beautiful acres remains a space of quiet tranquility in a world where that's increasingly hard to find. Our kind and enthusiastic staff works hard to ensure this precious land is preserved so that Kirkridge can continue to allow visitors "a place to be and to become a people of hope, compassion, justice, and service." This mission would not be possible without our home.
We need your help to keep this vision alive. Like many older retreat centers, repairs and maintenance of our land and facilities can often stretch our limited budget. Currently, the truck we use to service Kirkridge is in poor condition and no longer has the quality brakes or transmission needed to journey our acres on the mountain.
The money we raise will be used to purchase a robust and functional used truck that can help our staff safely and efficiently serve the needs of both our land and facilities. Though a humble request, the benefits a truck will provide Kirkridge Retreat Center are immeasurable. It will allow us to not only continue providing our guests with excellent accommodations, but also help fulfill Kirkridge's important and relevant message of hope and inclusivity.
Anything you share with us will be met with gratitude! Thank you for keeping the Kirkridge vision alive!

New leadership is needed for new times, but it will not come from finding more wily ways to manipulate the external world. It will come as we who serve and teach and lead find the courage to take an inner journey toward both our shadows and our light—a journey that, faithfully pursued, will take us beyond ourselves to become healers of a wounded world.
There is in us an instinct for newness, for renewal, for a liberation of creative power. We seek to awaken in ourselves a force which really changes our lives from within. And yet the same instinct tells us that this change is a recovery of that which is deepest, most original, most personal in ourselves.
