We believe in radical self honesty, contemplation and a heart that is open and strong, as the way to a life of love. We believe that the kingdom of God is within us all, that love is abundant, present, healing and always calling us home. We are followers of Jesus, looking towards the bottom and the outside of what we usually understand, below the surface and beyond the form.
