Dragonfly Center provides safe, nurturing environments for all people who are ready to gain more awareness, heal holistically, and cultivate the well-being of the whole person. We inspire people to reconnect with the light within and find their meaning, purpose, and true happiness in life.
Our diverse range of programs foster the human potential movement through empowered healing and transformation, social change global outreach projects, and sustainable, conscious living. We are committed to creating a shift in the global consciousness. We are driven by our purpose to promote happiness, health and wellness through integrative approaches that balance mind, body, heart and spirit.
To facilitate positive transformation for the healing of individuals and our planet.
Our goal is to establish a sanctuary for people to get away and rejuvenate with serene grounds and trails; reconnecting with themselves through our daily workshops, daylong, weekend, and week-long retreats. We offer a diverse range of programs geared towards holistic health and the well-being of the whole person. Our educational and retreat community offers a wide range of self-discovery focus areas: interpersonal, spiritual, professional, sexual, creative, financial, environmental, mental, and emotional.
What this will look like: Dragonfly Center is the complete retreat experience. We offer zen-like accommodations (from tents to premium rooms) for all of our guests. Our café hosts communal meals with fresh, organic gourmet gluten-free, vegetarian meals and juices. Guests will find optimal health at our Indigenous-East-West integrative health center. We have an educational institute for professional and leadership training as well as classes to nurture our youth. Because of our commitment to healing individuals and our planet, we have a social farm where we utilize biodynamic farming practices to assist in various therapies. The farm produces produce for our café and the community. We are a thriving, supportive intentional community.
Our social change outreach projects seek to alleviate suffering through out the world. Some of our projects have included: free and donation-based workshops in the San Francisco Bay urban communities, especially stress management and meditation programs in East Palo Alto; free diversity training for youth on race and oppression; scholarships to our workshops and retreats to provide accessibility to anyone seeking to enhance their life and realize their full potential, regardless of background or status; healing massage to HIV/AIDS orphans in Cambodia; volunteering in the Kids Saving the Rainforest animal sanctuary in Costa Rica; facilitating free meditation for AA groups; teaching women, men, at-risk and gang-involved youth tools to be empowered change-makers through the mind-body connection and breaking the perpetuating cycles of violence. Dragonfly Healing Center is dedicated to positive transformation in all its forms, connecting spirit and community.
Currently, we are fundraising to continue delivering mindfulness and social emotional learning skills and curriculum to three preschools in underserved communities in the San Francisco Bay Area (communities in East Palo Alto, East Menlo Park, and Redwood City). Low-income parents and their children ages 0 - 5 years old are gaining benefits from the classes being taught to help them reduce stress and be more calm, peaceful, and happy. We need your help to continue! Please SUPPORT this project!
