Emerging Passages of Soul Based Living
Wellness for All
Innate Body Wisdom: Healing through Wholistic Wisdoms
Our innate healing is our bodies wisdom to regenerate, release, reorganize, restore, remember. There are times our bodies need a comprehensive wholistic approach to activate our natural immunity and healing process. This can be done through healthy food choices, supplements, IV treatments, bodywork, energy healing and psychological emotional support.
This program assists people in finding those places and funds for wholistic approaches in healing chronic and terminal dis-eases; In addition to advocating for self education to be your own healer. Part of this education is implementing lifestyle changes which can be practiced at our partnered retreat centers, community wellness programs and sustainable farming communities.
In certain situations you may need support to come to you. This can be done through our Healing HANS program an Herbal Aid Nursing System.
Our direct OneLoveHeals community of practitioners will have some of profits going back into the nonprofit.
Passage of Being
Imagine a safe space for youth to come as they are, to connect with their purpose and find support in living authentic sustainable lives.
The One Love Heals Youth Haven is a drop in resource center for youth to take pause in life situations and recenter in their well being.
There is space for workshops, events, cultural awareness elder leadership offerings, life skill or group activities, rotating therapists and a deescalation self help meditation and wellness awareness room. Youth may expand the practice of these skills at partnership communities and eco villages offering sustainable living skills, rites of passage ceremonial retreats, and servicing their community with educational volunteer opportunities and apprenticeship.
This center will continue to host The LGBTQ+ Youth and Allies; RAYG(rainbow alliance youth group) meetup on first Saturdays and other days focused on supportive events.
All youth 12-18 and young adults approved for our intern program are welcome when they can leave their judgment and differences at the door. This space is here to prevent the rise in suicide, autoimmune disease, human trafficking and violence that has been passed through generations of trauma and epigenetics.
The goal is to empower youth to live a life of authenticity, sustainability and holistic wellness that ensures the ability of reciprocity with all living systems on Earth.
Food Sovereignty and Sustainable Living
Wellness for all means being attentive to what we put into our bodies, where what we consume came from, how it was grown, the health of the soil that gave it its nutrients and the environment this place on earth is immersed in. Participating in growing our own food is part of holistic health. Being connected to the land is part of growing in wellness. Understanding indigenous cultures wisdoms that lived through these perspectives is part of universal healing and sustainable living. Creating global food forests, sustainable housing systems with rainwater collection, food is free distribution locations will contribute to wellness for all. Having basic needs met will lead to humanity living attuned to their parasympathetic nervous system. Participating in life from a place of peace can have a ripple effect on global wellness.

We started One Love Heals because we believe in the power of self-healing. It begins with loving oneself, being your own witness in a space of non-judgement, and moving that energy of self love into universal love.
