Our History

Founded by Flower and Lawrence Newhouse

Questhaven Retreat was founded in 1940 by Reverends Flower and Lawrence Newhouse. Flower A. Newhouse is a well-known twentieth-century Christian mystic. She wrote and lectured extensively to reawaken humanity to the reality of the Living Christ, the Inner Worlds and the Angel Kingdom. Her exceptional synthesis of inner perception and Christ-centered character was consecrated to the rediscovery of esoteric truth and the training of students in the way of Christian discipleship.

Flower Newhouse was one of the best authorities on Angels and a most excellent channel.
Edgar Cayce (1152-11)
