Mission Statement

We believe that when our Mother Earth and all her living
things were created, a loving balance, respect, and communication existed
between Humans, all other life forms, and the Earth. We believe that Humankind
has forgotten the original plan, to the detriment not only of others in the
animal kingdom, and of the Earth, but of ourselves. We believe that a return to
an understanding of our oneness with All That Is will cure the cruelties and
horrors, and the illnesses with which we find ourselves surrounded. Through our
caring contribution, we hope to help Humankind remember that original plan of
love and respect, to remember our natural ability to communicate with All That
Is, and so return to balanced health, physically, mentally, spiritually, and in
relationship to all.
