To decrease suffering and improve quality of life through acceptance, change and mindful awareness.
Acceptance is the practice of allowing whatever is within, from moment to moment, as is. To practice acceptance is to allow ourselves to be in the present with no judgment, no criticisms and no what if’s.
Change happens over time with consistent and directed efforts to create new ways of seeing, thinking and behaving. As the passage of water and fire over elements as hard as stone, we can see beautiful creations and transformations emerge. Change is inevitable, daily and constant. We invite you to walk with us in your journey towards transformation and healing, embracing change as a path towards wholeness.
