Some of the incredible organizations we work with and from whose wisdom we greatly benefit.

Health & Healing – Offering integrative healing programs for people with cancer, health professionals and the rest of us.
Education & the Arts – Building learning communities based in creative dialogue to deepen our vision and help resolve our differences.
Environment & Justice – Helping to build a just, peaceful and resilient world where our children may grow free and strong.

… a nurturing, supportive place where anyone impacted by cancer, a life-changing condition, or loss can explore and engage in their own healing.

… a safe sanctuary that invites a step outside the ordinary flow of time… a respite… a recess… a retreat for deep inner listening.

… a learning community that offers a social hub where all of us—regardless of age or health—can expand our capacity for healing, living, and aging well.

Smith Center is a nonprofit health, education, and arts organization in Washington DC. Our mission is to develop and promote healing practices that explore physical, emotional, and mental resources that lead to life-affirming changes for people affected by cancer.

Teaching people to thrive, transforming their lives and inspiring healthy living is the mission of Harmony Hill.

The heart of our mission is to support survivorship for people affected by cancer, their caregivers, survivors and health care professionals with hope, healing and positive change to live each day to the fullest. A large and generous community of supporters funds our programs through property rentals, events, sponsorships, and fund drives.

Callanish creates a healing space for people who have been irrevocably changed by cancer.

It inspires those who are living with and/or dying from cancer to reconnect with the essentials of life—and in doing so, to feel soothed, strengthened and restored. At the heart of Callanish is a weeklong retreat that provides a gentle catalyst for revitalizing the spirit. After more than 20 years and over 75 retreats, Callanish has evolved into a far-reaching community deeply rooted in the fundamentals of what it means to be human.

Worship at St. Paul’s is at the heart of who we are. Music, prayer, and the spoken word all are meant to point us to the living God, the grace and love of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit that transforms lives and communities. St. Paul’s also provides enriching opportunities to grow as followers of Jesus. Prayer groups, Bible studies, active young adult groups, and programs for children, youth, and adults of all ages serve to make us capable of serving God fully in the world.

Justice and mercy flow out of that faith. So you’ll find here an active and growing ministry with homeless persons in the city, partnerships with organizations that do restorative work with those in need, after school programs for community children, and much more.

For more than fifty years, The Jung Center has served as a nonprofit resource unique to Houston—a forum for dynamic conversations on a diverse range of psychological, artistic, and spiritual topics. Our mission is to support the development of greater self-awareness, creative expression, and psychological insight—individually, in relationships, and within the community. The Jung Center provides pathways to find a deeper meaning in everyday life.

The Institute for Spirituality and Health at The Texas Medical Center recognizes that humans are spiritual beings and that healthcare should reflect this reality. Our mission is to increase awareness of the role that spirituality plays in health and healing, in coping with chronic illness and in maintaining optimal health.  They bring scholars, healthcare professionals, religious leaders and the public together to learn how spirituality can impact health and healing.  The Institute engages in education, research and direct services.

When disaster [hurricane Harvey] struck our city, Houstonians responded as they have during disasters past: with COMPASSION. Differences in creed and color dissolved as people helped fellow people. Many are still without a home or employment. For those suffering and for all Houstonians, let us carry the compassionate spirit forward into the long recovery and beyond.
Designated as a City of Compassion in 2015, Houston moves forward with a focus on the three essential ingredients to cultivate compassion in a community: Awareness, Education and Service.

The mission of our Collaborative – an extension of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine (CMBM) – is to disseminate CMBM’s “train the trainer” model of self-awareness, self-care and mutual support to Houston-based therapists and counselors to first decrease their own symptoms of stress and trauma and then to teach them to effectively implement the model in their communities.
