ABOUT

MISSION STATEMENT:

We warmly welcome both non-vegetarians who are sincerely  interested in exploring vegan food in a friendly, supportive environment; and vegans who already enjoy living in a meat/animal product free home. Please note our home is a peaceful sanctuary conducive to meditation and yoga. Therefore,  it is strictly a NO ALCOHOL, DRUGS, WEED, and NON Smoking Zone.  We do not mind what you do outside on your own though :-)

“May our Wounds be Fertile Ground for Fragrant Flowers to Grow

May our Tears of Sorrow cast Rainbows from Heaven to Earth

May our Heart be a Comforting Refuge for all of Creation

May all of Creation be a Reflection of our Brilliance

May our Noble Path bring Love, Blessings and Grace to All.”
