We believe it is important to make choices and take action that directly and immediately support the changes one wishes to see in the world while also optimizing one’s own wellbeing. This brings together the simple enjoyment of life, with a sense of connection and purpose, and the imperative to serve others and contribute to a greater whole.
The Midddle Path experience includes: Meditation and secular spiritual practice, healthful food and cooking, sustainable ecology and permaculture, yoga and qigong, natural and integrative healing, community service, and organic and biodynamic agriculture.
