Health and Spirituality Program

Experience Inner Healing in the Midst of Cultural Chaos

Our American culture is riddled with fear and anxiety. We follow the lead of our anxious culture and do what it tells us, “Ignore and numb yourselves from what is deep under the surface of your uncomfortable, nagging and sometimes debilitating fear and anxiety!” We gravitate toward what our culture tells us will help: shopping, watching, exercising, eating, sleeping, drinking, working, playing, medicating, living in the virtual world, and so on and so forth.

If these words sound familiar to you then you might consider our Health and Spirituality Program.
