Welcome to Center for lost arts
Center For Lost Arts is a place of retreat, learning & conscious community.
We look forward to meeting you & discussing how we may be of service or be served by you.
Retreat & Gathering Spaces
House of Paul is the main building of Center For Lost Arts. The house serves as a residence as well as being used for meditation, mindfulness, yoga & art retreats.
Eva's Roost is a zen-style cottage nestled in the hillside overlooking the pond & forest - a perfect space for retreating & reconnecting with nature alone or with others *
Tiny House of Paul is a tiny home designed & built by Paul, with many of his signature touches. We currently have a year-long resident during the pandemic. We expect to start booking stays again in the fall of 2021. Contact us if you are interested in being updated.

The Village Kitchen
A Collective of Artisan Producers
A dream for several years now, we now have a licensed kitchen in the back of our building in downtown Cobden. We are grateful for our on-site farmer, Stuart Wayman, for getting the kitchen started. The Village Kitchen is currently full, but if you would like to be on a waitlist, please contact Bonnie HERE.
