Our vision is to be a vital partner in a global movement of personal and collective liberation through transformational programs, exemplary faculty, compassionate community, and a culture of social engagement.

No one individual or community alone can bring the scope and scale of change we seek, so we’re committed to partnering with other like-minded communities and organizations to help co-create a more equitable, sustainable and compassionate world we need.

If you share our mission and wish to partner with us please reach out to Geri Loizzo, Director of Programs and Community Engagement.
