The Spiritual Spa exists to help you pursue whole life health and to challenge you to step into the life that you were uniquely created to live. In our experience this requires a spiritual foundation, which includes knowing the One who created you.
Our retreats, groups and media resources are primarily targeted to women and are relevant to the real life issues they face. However, we also offer a few men's and co-ed workshops. We do our best to meet you wherever you are and encourage you to take the next step on your spiritual journey. We believe that this journey is best taken together -- receiving the help we need from others and sharing what we have to give. Our events, groups and resources help you to honestly assess your life, choose life-giving ways, and let go of anything that may be a barrier to living the life you were created to live.
The Spiritual Spa incorporates thought-provoking teaching, music and art, personal encouragement, and experiences that help you move toward wholeness - spiritually, emotionally, physically, and relationally. To help you receive love, healing and guidance from our Creator, we include a variety of spiritual activities such as solitude, prayer, journaling, creativity, reflection on God’s word, resting/soaking in God's love, and opportunities to use your gifts and resources to serve others. We also incorporate other disciplines that support whole life health, such as nutrition, physical movement, etc.
The Spiritual Spa is led by a group of leaders, teachers and artists whose lives have been deeply impacted by our journey to know, trust and follow our Creator. We share deep, authentic spiritual friendships and encourage each other with humility and a sense of humor. We offer groups where you can develop these kinds of friendships too. We also continually develop and raise up new leaders, teachers and artists who are gifted to bring encouragement and support others.
We love telling our stories of the truly miraculous life change we have experienced by prioritizing our spiritual lives and receiving God's love, mercy, and help through our relationship with Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The thing people say about us the most is that we’re just ‘real.' Collectively, we have been through a lot, and we openly share our experiences so you will know that whatever you are going through, you are not alone and you can overcome.
Our Healing Projects
We are investing personally and as an organization in helping women who have come out abusive and destructive situations to rebuild their lives. We give our time and a generous portion of our media resource proceeds to specific issues and programs. We call these our Healing Projects. We also encourage Spiritual Spa participants and friends to receive healing themselves and to help by sharing time, talents, resources and influence to assist others to step into the life they were created to live. We currently have three focus areas.
1) Healing from Sexual Abuse and Abortion - Depending on the statistics you read, it is possible that 1 in 3 women have suffered some form of sexual abuse and/or have had an abortion. Coming out of these situations can often affect our ability to live a healthy life. Some victims are walking around living somewhat normally, while hiding the pain inside and the impact behind the scenes. Others have had their lives devastated by addictions, isolation, divorce, inability to maintain healthy relationships or a job, loss of motherhood, etc. We are raising awareness and making it safe and OK for women to step into the healing process by offering confidential short-term and ongoing groups.
2) Stepping Stones - A program to educate and engage the community in preventing domestic commercial sexual exploitation and providing comprehensive, restorative care to survivors. Help us to help them restore their lives, one step at a time. Learn more, donate or get involved at www.steppingstonesnetwork.org. This is a US based program.
3) The White Rainbow Project - A project to help widows in India who are stripped of their color, their home and their dignity simply because their husband dies. Many are shunned and end up destitute. Help us to help them get their color and build a new life. Learn more, donate or get involved at www.whiterainbowproject.org. This is an international program based in India.
Our Spiritual Foundation
The foundation for all we do is our love for God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, our love for all people, and our humble understanding of the Bible. We are not affiliated with any one church, synagogue or denomination. Our desire is to work synergistically with the faith community to bring people from various backgrounds and beliefs together to get healthy, step into the lives we were uniquely created to live, and to reflect the love of Jesus to those in need.
If you are a leader who is considering working with us and would like more detailed information about our organization, values, beliefs, team members, etc., please contact us and request a Leadership Information Packet.
