Better and Better… Deeper and Deeper… Magic and miracles happen here. The body not only heals physically but sturcturally as well. The mind becomes clear and spirit expands to a greater consciosness. This institute is helping to heal the planet one person at a time. I am 73 and as I leave the institute I feel I am stronger mentally, physically, emotional and spiritually then ever before in my life deep gratitude. Blessing!

I came to heal my skin (eczema), mind (grief), and pain (arthritis). I also found community and learned more than I can write in words. Mission accomplished!
