Our Founding Vision arose during 2016, and is based on the experience of oneness within the ecology of creation.

This vision looks to how all beings and indeed all things are in one relationship. We are kin. We are one, though we are many. Today’s therapeutic sciences echo the traditional cultural sciences. From the original teachings flow the many pathways of spirituality and culture around the world. From these traditions arises the Person-Centred, Strength-Based, and Psycho-educational methods that form the foundations for excellence in therapeutic support.
