Our Approach

Our Teaching

We believe that spirituality is intelligible and understandable.  We've questioned everything and come up with some core beliefs, that doesn't preclude us from helping you wrestle with yours.  We believe that God wants you to be happy, health, whole and complete.  The blueprint for making that happen is found within you.
