Shelter from the Storms of Life

Stressed? Tired? Sad? A mindfulness circle can help. Our weekly circles energize the body, renew the mind, and refresh the spirit. We support holistic wellness through movement, stillness, and connection.

"To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul," wrote Simone Weil, French philosopher and activist.
We help people get rooted.



The average U.S. consumer produces 4.5 pounds of trash PER DAY. We spend over 6 hours a day on a screen. Children can identify dozens of brands and no native species. We are in the wrong relationship with nature. We help people right their relationship with nature.
Get righted.



Financial stress is the number-one stress in the U.S. Yet, very few programs treat the root causes of financial stress. We get real about money and financial stress. Get real.

Meditation has given me freedom from stresses that were preventing me from living and working. Thank you for your kindess and wisdom."

Better mental health

"I can definitely say this club brought me out of my comfort zone. It allowed me to do things that I honestly would never do to better my mental health. I enjoyed meeting the people that I met and I'm happy to say that I've been a part of this club for 3 years now! Wouldn't change it for anything, students should

definitely join!"
