Meditation

"It has been said that it's the space between the bars that holds the tiger. And it's the silence between the notes that makes the music. It is out of the silence, or "the gap," or that space between our thoughts, that everything is created - including our own bliss." - Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Learning to meditate will help to reduce the background noise & distractions in your life, reduce stress, improve focus, and create a better overall sense of well-being.

Empowerment

Increasing the degree of autonomy and self-determination in people and in communities in order to enable them to represent their interests in a responsible and self-determined way. It is the process of individual's becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and taking responsibilities for our own choices, reactions, and outcomes. 

Stress Reduction 

Current research has shown the importance of reducing stress for mental and physical benefits.  Sometimes “stress” is a mysterious state that we can’t quite grasp let alone understand where it comes from, why, or how to eliminate it.  Through self-awareness practices and mindfulness we can apply techniques to reduce stress in our everyday lives.

Spirituality Workshops

Community Events

Spirituality

Spirituality isn’t about religion-based thinking or practices, not that there is anything wrong with that.  The general terms of spirituality is about connecting with a higher power, whatever you want to call it, and realizing that a piece of that higher power resides in all of us, connecting us, and leading us to a fulfilled life.

 

Community Events

“Happiness is not ready-made.  It comes from your own actions.” - The Dalai Lama

Humans are social animals: We crave feeling supported, valued and connected to others in our community.  Studies have shown that a key to happiness, health and a longer life was good relationships and strong social and community ties.

OUR PROGRAMS ARE BASED ON ACHIEVING:
