The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our mission is to cultivate attitudes, skills and practices that transform lives, organizations, and communities.
Bread of Life is a charitable and educational non-profit center for spiritual formation. We envision communities that model and support an awakening human journey. We are a small, actively expanding non-profit, treating all people as having sacred worth, a stance that celebrates the diversity of people's gifts. Cultivation of these attitudes and practices grows postivie choice-making that benefits the person and society. Our processes encourage participants to live from their deepest values as a contribution to the common good.
We have three main program streams:
Spirit in the Arts (our free, self-directed arts studio and hub for facilitated creative groups)
Mindful Engagement (offering skills for freeing the best thinking and spirit in organizations and communities, also known as Contemplative Dialogue)
Spiritual Formation & Leadership (offering Spiritual Direction, a kind of GPS for the soul, and other leadership trainings that equip others to do this kind of work in their own settings)
