About Us

Welcome to Genesis Spiritual Life & Conference Center

Genesis Spiritual Life and Conference Center creates an environment that reveals the love of God for all creation and brings hope and healing to all who come.

Founded in 1976, Genesis Spiritual Life and Conference Center offers on-site and online programs, retreats, sabbaticals, spiritual direction and healing arts, and meeting/conference space to guests who appreciate a holistic approach to mind, body, and spirit.

Home to the Providence Arboretum, the Center is set on nineteen wooded acres, where the grounds are kept in concert with nature’s wisdom. The 7,000 square foot meticulously maintained Carriage House, built-in 1829, and the main building, with its dining halls, chapel, meeting rooms, and 30 private and shared guest rooms, invoke serenity, peace, and contemplation.

Experience peace and tranquility, natural landscapes, and peaceful blooming gardens, along with our comfortable guest rooms, lodging, and delicious home-cooked meals. Located in Westfield, Massachusetts, the Center is a part of the vibrant arts, culture, and natural beauty of Western Massachusetts.

A sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Providence of Holyoke, Massachusetts, Genesis welcomes persons of all faith and walks of life.
