Workshop & Retreat Specifics - To keep our programs available to everyone we offer sliding scale fees and scholarships. We practice the tradition of "alms" - which allows the participant to give what they can afford to the teacher. To provide a healing atmosphere all programs are limited to small groups of not more than 10 individuals, with overnight programs limited to 5 persons. Most of our 2017 programs take place on public lands. Campgrounds, solo camping, cabin rental and motels are all available options in the Detroit area for overnight stays. A list of these options will be given to all workshop participants. All participants will need to provide personal transportation to our workshop locations unless requested otherwise. Carpooling options will be made available when possible and per request. We will provide equipment assistance, transportation options and most meals for overnight wilderness workshops. Please let us know if you have any questions or special needs.
Additional Non-Profit Program - helping people in need - We recognize that many people cannot afford alternative healing nor have access to it. Although we offer programs to everyone interested, our healing philosophy also has a non profit heart-centered focus. We will also offer free, subsidized, and sliding scale programs to those with limited or no income, including working with at-risk youth, veterans, survivors of violence & domestic abuse, and other special needs persons. If these programs are popular we will be eventually seek a non-profit 501c3 status for this part of our center. Grants, donations, volunteer services and other funding help finance these programs.
Come join us as a workshop participant or program teacher . It is by working together and lifting up others that we help change the world. If this sounds interesting please email or call for more information. Questions and ideas are welcome.


We are offering seminars, wilderness retreats in 2017. Please go to our Workshops & Retreats webpage for more info.
