Pictures from Manzanita Village
I came here for a some peace and quiet. I ended up rethinking everything
I though I knew about my life, and what was possible. Chuck Page, San Diego
I love the land here. The chaparral forest, on desert’s edge,
beneath countless stars is itself a teacher.
Lawrence Ellis, Lawrence Ellis Associates Oakland
The quiet beauty of the setting, and the grace and support of the participants reminded me of how wonderful life can be.
I can’t imagine anyone not being touched by this place.
Sara Carmichael, Los Angeles
I have been in this ‘self-help-transformation’ business for over twenty years,
and you are up there with the very best. Thank you for all the beauty you have co-created with the universe.
Rev. Elizabeth O’Day, Salt Lake City
I am grateful beyond words for the remarkable work of Caitríona and Michele.
No spiritual teachers I know bring a broader, more relevant range of knowledge,
experience, and well-honed skills for awakening us to fullness of being.
While thoroughly schooled in ancient traditions, their work is fresh and bold,
igniting both courage and joy for meeting the challenges of today’s world.
For over a decade my own life and teaching has been enriched
by their adventurous creativity and passionate respect for life.
Joanna Macy, activist, teacher, and author of
“World as Lover, World as Self” and “Coming Back to Life”,
