May Ristich is the Resident Director of Arche International at the Renaissance Center in Gill, Massachusetts. She and a group of friends from Massachusetts attended the Action Seminar, conducted by Rosita Rodriguez, Ph.D., and trained staff from Arche International in 1977. May found the knowledge and energy she received from this two day workshop to be so compelling and life changing that she decided to travel to Oak Park. There she was able to audit Arche International’s classes and gain further insight to their philosophy. She also traveled to the Philippines with Rosita and studied with the Philippine Spiritual Healers. When May returned to Massachusetts, she sponsored many workshops and assisted the Oak Park staff in conducting numerous Arche International Meditation Retreats throughout the East Coast. In 1988, after working with this simple, down-to-earth, Arche Philosophy, May, with the support of like-minded friends in Massachusetts, began to offer Arche International weekly and weekend classes. Her goal is to share the Arche Philosophy with the serious seekers yearning for the Light of their Divine nature through knowledge of how the Universe works.
