Enjoy time in our labyrinth, walking our 19 acres of land, (now designated as an arboretum), taking in the silence of our meditation room or chapel, and enjoying a delicious lunch. Spiritual direction is also available. Take some time for yourself to just pray away.

ONE SPIRIT MEDICINE: WHERE MODERN SCIENCE MEETS WISDOM

ONE SPIRIT MEDICINE opens the doors to the invisible matrix of SPIRIT and to the WISDOM that Carl Jung called the "Collective Conscious". We can heal in new ways, retain and renew our vitality, keep connected to the life-giving SPIRIT and Mother Earth, and discover a renewed sense of purpose for our life.
