OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES

DESERT SPACE

Is here to share as a means to finding one’s own “religion” in the tradition of pilgrimages with freedom from distraction.

SPIRITUAL QUIETUDE

In a contemplative retreat atmosphere that provides refuge for the greater community with an emphasis on health and wellness for the body and mind.

WELLNESS

Based on a wide range of self care practices that incorporate body, mind, and spirit; informed by the science of Mentalphysics which teaches that Prana – life energy – carries intelligence that can be harnessed in breath work, meditation
and diet.

EDUCATIONAL GATHERINGS

In a creative learning environment, with buildings and outdoor spaces designed for large and small groups who desire the lure of the desert.

STEWARDSHIP

Of our natural environment and historic buildings, in a careful and conscious manner.

BELONGING

As a deep knowing of something greater and meaningful. Being at home and appreciated in a supportive environment.
