The welcoming community of Siena Retreat Center provides retreats and programs that renew lives and deepen holistic spirituality in an environment of peace, joy, and beauty. Siena Retreat Center serves approximately 7,000 people per year by providing space for group and individual retreats and by offering enrichment opportunities, training programs, and other services. Upcoming programs for 2019-2020 include presentations on Martin Luther King Jr’s vision of the beloved community, adverse childhood experiences and trauma-informed care, socially responsible investing, and spirituality and the Black experience. We offer a variety of programming for those who are grieving and those who work with the bereaved. Many community groups use our space including Leadership Racine, United Way, and various
churches, as well as the Elderly Services Network annual breakfast. Through its ecumenical approach and commitment to hospitality and social justice, Siena has supported people on their journey to healing, peace, and wholeness
