The Self & Soul Center has become Self & SoulWork.
The precious holding environment of the land has changed from the creek and woods to the calm Bay and railroad gardens of Lake Oswego. No longer a place of retreat, we are integrated into community. Still the gardens nourish us on the outside, and the inner sanctuary takes us to the home of our heart.
Each trimester of the year, you can join the SoulWork Deepening class to plant the garden of your heart. Suzanna Yahya and Raphael Rodney are both available for individual consultations. Contact us
