We believe in equal access to effective tools for personal change, regardless of social, economic, and geographic barriers.

We believe holistic wellness is promoted by strengthening the mind, body, and community. Continued wellness requires a feeling of emotional and physical safety where the individual can grow and express themself.

 We believe quality supportive relationships between self, teacher, student, mentor, and community, bring with them the greatest potential for positive change.

We believe in the transformative power of contact with culture. Foreign cultural practices provide diverse opportunities for creative self-expression, and often challenge the individual to examine how they live, work and play.

We believe in You! You the client, student, teacher, parent, administrator, collaborator, donor, mentor, volunteer – you possess the wisdom and necessary strengths to create personal and community-level change.
