Our community

our community

We embrace the opportunity to serve our community and beyond. By engaging our community to identify opportunities for service and mindfully connecting our resources to those needs, we can spread the gifts of awareness and compassion.

One of the benefits of community is the feeling of connection. Connecting with like-minded people gives us a support network, sparks new ideas, fuels our growth, and nourishes the soul.
