Our vision is “Nurturing artistic excellence for the mind, body, and spirit.” We are a Baha’i-inspired, charitable, non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Experience a personal retreat in a serene atmosphere where you can relax, meditate, and create your memoir, novel, play, musical or painting masterpiece. Enjoy walking, hiking, swimming, warm or hot days and starlit nights. Schedule your meeting, seminar, or training session for a few hours or overnight. Plan a reunion, retreat or special event for your friends, family, business, or organization. The DRBI campus provides meeting and dining rooms, recreational areas and dorm/motel-style/apartment lodging. Desert Rose is a quiet, peaceful, rural oasis in the Arizona Sonoran Desert; in Eloy midway between Phoenix and Tucson. Although Eloy’s population is about 16,000, it has many amenities, among which is the Eloy Municipal Airport. The Eloy Airport accommodates small planes and houses the internationally known Skydive Arizona and hot air balloon rides providing a bird’s eye view of Picacho Peak State Park which features a dramatic 3,374-foot mountain climbing challenge.
