THE HEALING TREE PROJECT
The Healing Tree Project’s mission? It's Simple: we seek to equip people with mindfulness skills and practices, a “self-awareness tool kit” if you will, to empower people to transform their lives! The Healing Tree Project is committed to offering mindfulness practice to people as a way to heal trauma, to suffer less, to find more Balance, Happiness and Health and ultimately to support a Flourishing Life, one person at a time.
