If we allow ourselves to dream big, we envision owning a property with a communal building, commercial kitchen, break-out rooms, a library, office and healing spaces. The property would also have an outdoor space to host a community sweat lodge and private lodge for individual healing and a small greenhouse for medicinal plants.
For now, we are happy to work within our means and develop more programs to suit the growth of our community, including more teachings with indigenous peoples, exploration of eastern philosophies (yoga and meditation), and interfaith dialogue.
