For Seekers: Nurturing the Human Soul

"The great malady of the 20th century, implicated in all of our troubles and affecting us individually and socially, is 'loss of soul'. When soul is neglected, it doesn't just go away; it appears symptomatically in obsessions, addictions, violence, and loss of meaning."
- Thomas Moore in Care of the Soul

  • To provide busy people with an undistracted experience of reflection and exploration of their Soul's unmet needs. We call this "Soulcare".
  • To guide Seekers to Majestic & Sacred Sites in the area, and provide assistance to facilitate a Spiritual Experience - usually through music, movement, guided meditation, prayer or simply allowing "Beingness" to occur in a safe & natural environment.
  • To create the experience of Joy & Peace through caring and sharing life's journey with other fellow seekers, thereby fostering Gratitude and Appreciation for our Aliveness.
  • To facilitate Personal Transformation, Spiritual Healing, Rites of Passage, Life Transitions, Inner Illumination, and the Desire to Serve Humanity in Harmony with the Divine Plan.
  • To share the Ageless Wisdom Teachings and relate its tenets to the principles of Modern Science and the enduring beliefs of the various World Religions.
  • To offer information, technical assistance, emotional and spiritual support to those who feel guided to relocate to this area.


In every land, 
the wise seek 
to know God...
