The Growing Edge generates ways in which the importance of healthy, sustainable relationships between people, the natural environment and the lifestyle and livelihood of all who depend upon it, can be demonstrated, protected and enhanced.

Through the lens of “multidimensional healing”, we sponsor and facilitate a variety of educational and health related programs and projects and provide resources which reflect conscientious, balanced, and restorative living practices.

We specifically focus on three essential aspects of healthy living by providing individual consultations and counseling, and sponsoring educational workshops, institutes, and community support in the areas of:

  • Multidimensional healthcare
  • Psycho-spiritual development
  • Conscientious living practices

Drawing from a confluence of the perennial wisdom traditions and contemporary science, The Growing Edge endeavors to create new perspectives and alliances and provide pro-active, comprehensive approaches to sustainable living. Through several outreach projects we extend our focus into the global arena. All endeavors reflect a deep commitment to the conservation an protection of the inherent diversity and vitality of a bio-region';s natural resources and environmental integrity, as we recognize these to be the intrinsic source of the collective well-being and quality of life for all.

Between 1993 and 2005, The Growing Edge offered personalized residential wellness retreats and educational programs in Big Sur, California. Currently we offer personalized residential retreats at Mount Madonna Center, a mountain top setting overlooking Monterey Bay, between Watsonville and Santa Cruz, California. (
