What's Happening on the Farm…
Soulshine Farm was established with the heartfelt intention to be an asset to our local community as a destination where children, adults, and families come to be supported and guided in a safe and loving manner to “tune-in” to their own inner wisdom – their kindness and creativity, to awaken their ability to be self-reliant, appreciate the gifts of nature and the environment, and become aware of our interconnectedness.
As fortunate caretakers, we strive to beautifully maintain and utilize the farm to provide creative programs designed to weave mindful activities with “hands-on” experiences such as caring for animals, tending of gardens and native plants, nature hikes, practicing yoga, creating arts, working with wood, and appreciating sound and silence.
Visitors of all ages will share opportunities to grow, connect, problem solve, and be present. As they choose to live a healthy lifestyle and practice gratitude, these individuals will enjoy a sense of balance, will show more respect and compassion for self and others, and practice mindful “thinking and doing.” Lives change when individuals choose to detach from negative emotions and fear, and open to joy in their own homes, schools, workplaces, their greater communities and maybe even globally.
We expect the use of mindful words and actions toward self, others, the animals, wildlife, and natural environment.
Kindness * Compassion * Empathy
It is most important that staff and visitors feel safe, welcomed, cared for, and appreciated for who they are.
We guide visitors to take moments to appreciate all they have to be thankful for – people, experiences, opportunities, along with necessities and comforts.
We strive to not answer all visitors’ questions or provide for their needs, but instead we encourage them to “think and do”. We teach problem solving and we guide, encourage, and support visitors to find answers for themselves.
We love to have fun, and to share laughter and joy with others.
Making a difference
We strive to make a positive impact on the lives of our staff and visitors and encourage them to do the same for others.
We strive to guide others to tune-in and trust their inner wisdom, draw upon their learned experiences, as well as their intuition and logical minds. We enjoy it when all who are present are able to share their own wisdom so that we all learn and grow.
