            Lynn Andrews had many a "Joshua Tree" events at this rustic property.  The Storm Eagle Training is a perfect event to have at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center.

            The Joshua Tree Retreat Center is the home of Edwin Dingle’s vision for The Institute of Mental Physics, City of Joy, where his founding belief of inclusive yet autonomous paths to personal truth and wellness, is celebrated and honored.

            The 140-acre desert campus offers serene walking paths and vortex energy locations to explore, an exercise pool and hot tub for relaxation as well as a spiritual book and gift store to find inspiration.

            The Retreat Center buildings were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and son Lloyd Wright. The simple accommodations then and now reflect a place to connect on a deep level with spiritual teachings and the beauty of the desert. For this reason, please note there are no televisions in our rooms.

            Weather in the desert is unpredictable. The forecast might indicate rain, yet the day turns out sunny – and the reverse can happen. Keeping this in mind, bring the right shoes and clothing for the time of year you are joining us
