The purpose of DMRC is to provide a facility for spiritual renewal and educational growth. Our secluded faciity located in the driftless area of NE Iowa provides an opportunity for individuals and groups to experience quietude and simplicity away from the noise and confusion of modern life. Being unafiliated with any specific religious organization, we are able to provide a unique openness in concept that allows for the nurturing of your personal journey.
