As a vision of First Community Church, we embrace our mission of creating a sacred space to explore the reaches of mind-body-spirit connection and inter-spiritual practices for the healing of 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 1940’s. 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.
- Curating experiences rooted in diverse faith traditions as well as social and scientific perspectives, The Burkhart Center creates a safe and sacred space for deep reflection, connection, and growth.
- We welcome people from all traditions, and from no tradition, to discern new paths to Loving Presence through innovative programs, practices, conversations, and community.
