About Arise: On 9/11 war was brought to our shores and the stress of it was felt in
every community. Kathleen Casas, a nurse in the mental health field saw the way these
highly challenging and turbulent times were impacting humanity and wanted to do
something about it. Her vision was create a place for people to go to heal naturally.
Kathleen believed building a community of holistic healthcare professionals would
enhance the normal healing abilities our bodies already possess. A team of earth
angels, all with roots in holistic and integrative medicine gathered beneath Kathleen’s
wings to make her vision come to life.
The vision being, a center that offered holistic retreats along with a wide variety of
wellness services. The core message of this center is “A spiritual regular retreat is
essential to a healthy lifestyle.” They called it Arise Spiritual Retreat and Wellness
Center. Arise chose to dedicate its services to strengthening the core of the family.
Their focus is on helping multi-generational families learn how to live in balance through
education in nutrition, managing stress wisely, care giving, and how to have fun
together while being productive.
The programs at Arise are geared specifically toward helping people with
interdisciplinary professionals and programs that take a holistic approach to health and
healing. The directors of Arise believe in Living Medicine, the marriage of allopathic
medicine with integrative, complementary and alternative treatments, which are holistic
and treat the whole person. Living Medicine recognizes multiple causes of illness,
encourages patients in taking responsibility for the management of their health and
recognizes the importance of spiritual health and assists individuals with making
necessary lifestyle and behavioral changes that lead to healthy life, rather than a life of
