Healing approaches will include meditation, diet, garden work, emotional processing, physical rehabilitation, contemplation, creative expression through movement, yoga, art, toning, & consultations with wellness practitioners.
Educational programs will be hands-on, from farming to cooking to upkeep of the center: visitors will learn how to live a sustainable and balanced lifestyle, while working with the needs of their own bodies, minds, and spirits.
Meditation benefits us all by promoting self awareness, the first step to self-regulation. It retrains the brain for serenity and focus, and can reverse depression and anxiety. All visitors will learn a basic form of meditation and practice as part of the daily schedule.
