    Staying Connected Thru Anything

    Wonderful News - Thankfully we can get together again!
    As our world reopens, we want to keep the lessons we've learned throughout the past year fresh in our minds. They have shown us how important it is to connect with other people, and with our inner selves.
    Throughout 2020 and into 2021 we've learned that we CAN control our life, and we can find new ways to do so. When we first heard that statement in the ministerial lessons of the Alliance of Divine Love, we wondered. But at the same time, it also gave us incredible peace to know that we don’t have to live at the mercy of others. Consider for a moment that it IS POSSIBLE to control your own life, create and change it including your reactions to everything that gets thrown at you in this life. That’s pure freedom.
    Many people have also learned how to react to things out in the physical world in a different manner and maybe learned to value what we have within our own four walls. It's also sent some people into depression, sadness and confusion. But this is a natural response and if you have had these experiences, please know that you are undergoing an amazing transformation, which we may be able to assist you with.
    Our purpose in life is not to be angry, uncertain, scared or frustrated. We believe we are here to learn to love and that we ARE Love. Our true Self is Love- the highest vibration. We are here to learn that we can use the POWER OF LOVE to create effectively in our lives. Most of us don’t think much about the power of our thoughts. We don’t think we choose what we create. Most of us think that life just happens to us….not realizing that LIFE ACTUALLY HAPPENS THROUGH US! Once you are able to see this and practice changing your thoughts, you begin to live life with grace and satisfaction.
    We hope you can join us in the future (checkout our Upcoming Events) and grow through the Power Of Love with us. Who knows, you may also be amazed as you see how wonderful you truly are!
    With much love,John & Heidi

Upcoming Special Events

We offer a wide variety of spiritual and secular classes, programs, workshops, and retreats to help you reawaken the Divine Love within.

  • 2022 Women's Grounding Retreat ~~ IN PERSON & ON ZOOM ~~

    Join us in-person for a full day, or attend for a portion of the day on Zoom!
    Grateful to be together again! While we do enjoy our Zoom retreats, and THANK YOU to those who participated, this retreat will be in person AND on Zoom! You can choose which way to attend.
    There is nothing like being with other women when you need to let it all go, truly relax and get recharged. At our next Women's Grounding Retreat, you are invited to join me on a Treasure Hunt in an "adventure of the spirit". We will dive deep, explore, discover and express our True Selves in creative ways you may never have tried before. We will all step out together in a journey of consciousness as we search for and discover the treasures deep within our hearts. 
    Our adventure will begin with a discussion where we can get to know each other as we share our life's journeys and "clues" we have discovered that have helped us find our way. You will be guided on an inner journey of discovery where you'll be led to find the treasures of your heart. From this, you will develop your own personal affirmations and mantra to use as you move along life's path. 
    Registration fee: In-Person: $96.00   Registration includes continental breakfast, journal and pen, all programs and discussions, light lunch, use of grounds, hot tub, pool weather dependent.
