As a vision of First Community Church, we embrace our mission of creating a sacred space to explore the mind-body-spirit connection and inter-spiritual practices for healing the soul and the world. We nurture vibrant and varied paths for life-long human development. Our revered leader, Dr. Roy Burkhart, was a champion of this vision who introduced cutting-edge teachers and spiritual exploration to our community as early as the 1940s. We honor his work and our long-standing psychological-spiritual tradition in naming The Burkhart Center.

At The Burkhart Center, we…

  • Offer a variety of teachers and experiences to help you explore the Divine, your unique self, and your place in the global community.
  • Curate experiences rooted in diverse faith traditions as well as social and scientific perspectives.
  • Create a safe and sacred space for deep reflection, connection, and growth.
  • Welcome people from all traditions and from no tradition to discern new paths to Loving Presence through innovative programs, spiritual practices, meaningful conversations, and community-building.
