Come away to rest & renew

Located on the beautiful 19-acre Providence Arboretum in Westfield, Massachusetts, Genesis creates an environment that will reveal the love of God for all creation and bring hope and healing to all who come. We offer private and group retreats, sabbaticals, and ongoing programs for guests who appreciate a holistic approach to mind, body, and spirit.

Care for Our Common Home

Like Thomas Berry and other ecospiritual pioneers, past and present, we believe that a spiritual awakening must occur in order to reimagine our place and responsibility within the whole of Earth. Rooted in a profound love for all creation, we work to transform hearts and minds toward interdependence and reciprocity. 

Plan Your Meeting or Event

Groups may rent space for day or evening events or multi-day programs utilizing our overnight accommodations. We are conveniently located half an hour from bus and train stations in Springfield, MA, and Bradley International Airport in Hartford, CT.

Silent. Night.

I am watching heartbroken with you as the terrible events in Israel and Palestine continue unfolding. At its core, Genesis is a place that seeks to offer hope and healing to the world, and so the unrest and devastation in the middle east has been at the forefront of my reflection and prayer these past few weeks. 

Everyone is a seed of God

Each of us is a seed of God that is meant to grow into the likeness of God. Genesis Spiritual Life and Conference Center is a place where the seed can be nourished towards full maturity.  Increasingly, people are looking for connection and a sense of belonging. Genesis is an oasis in the midst of daily uncertainty – a place to strengthen contemplative practices and renew one’s faith and spirituality.
