WHAT GUESTS HAVE TO SAY
  
"The program itself had a very positive impact on me. After my first week I realized that this program was not merely a mixture of different wellness treatments, but was a very prescribed course of therapy containing elements that all work together."
  
  
 
Nurturing the Seeds of New Growth
  
Nurturing ourselves comes in many forms - from delighting the senses & nourishing the body with the zesty preparations of a meal, to the deep relaxation or release brought about through therapeutic body work. 
 
A hot soak in an epsom salt bath to ease tensions held in the body or an exciting exploration of the natural world each day can truly feed the soul & deepen our relationship with ourselves & with the world around us.
  
Unseen & at times, unnoticed by others, an internal world also swirls within us as life force moves in the form of thoughts through the mind & emotions through the body. This energy cycles through the body with the intention of being expressed in the world. If we have found & practiced healthy ways to process or express this personal energy, it continues to move freely through us. If not, we may be dealing with a bit of a back log...
 
  
 
Connecting With Grace
  
A therapy dog wasn't something Grace had remembered from her brief read  through the Centers website. It was wholly unexpected to see a honey coloured canine stroll into the group room and join in by greeting everyone, one after another with a soft gaze & a comforting nuzzle this morning.
 
Skybear was introduced as a certified therapy dog who'd had a rough start in life down in New Mexico.

It was pretty clear life had improved for her since being found on the streets at 7 weeks old.  

Grace caught herself feeling a common bond with this little creature. Her memories seemed to echo Skybears experience when she recalled the scary, confusing, unpredictable, unprotected times of her life. Grace imagined Skybear's life in New Mexico would have bred the same kind of survival anxiety she knew now that she herself had been experiencing...

Building our individual & collective compassion is an art.
Here at the Center, you are your own masterpiece!

"Just by being ourselves 
we are borne toward
a destiny far beyond
anything we could imagine.
 
It is enough to know that the being I nourish inside me is the same as the Being that suffuses every atom of the cosmos."

Dance
 
'Have you seen butterflies dance?
See the honeybee dance
See the birds dance
Have you seen the Peacock dance?
 
Listen to your own Humming Heart dancing!
See Human life is for Joy & Happiness
Dance & be thankful in life.'
