Healing comes through a Restoration of Sacred Balance.

of the Divine in our lives.


We are open to all faiths - spiritual but not religious or alternate faith understandings.


Restoring Balance will be a combination of teaching, small group discussion and learning through experience. You should leave the retreat with additional insights on forgiveness and a new

appreciation of the spirit of healing and love within your own spiritual journey.
